Calendar Highlight: The New York Botanical Garden Orchid Show

Calendar Highlight: The New York Botanical Garden Orchid Show

Each year, The New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx heralds the coming spring by transforming the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory into the ultimate garden party- the annual Orchid Show.

This year’s theme, Thailand, gives the dedicated garden staff a lot to work with. Thailand is home to over 1,200 native orchid species including the popular vanda orchid, whose large, rainbow blooms are a staple of Thai homes and gardens.

In addition to the thousands of blossoms on display, the show also features a Thai pavilion constructed in the traditional, arched facade style, Thai spirit houses- miniature temples where votive offerings are left, dance performances, orchid care demonstrations and the always popular Orchid Evenings where the over 21 set can enjoy cocktails while meandering through the exhibit.

The Orchid Show runs from February 18- April 9, 2017
