 Mark your calendar for the 2019 VAOS Orchid Show, February 2&3. This major community event is expected to draw over 4000 attendees from the tri-county area. Nationally recognized growers from as far away as Hawaii will exhibit and sell orchids. This show is always held the first full weekend in February at the Venice Community Center in downtown Venice, the perfect venue for displaying the orchid exhibits and sales areas. They are fortunate to have a large and active society and always look forward to producing another spectacular show this year.
