Description

During the Saint Paul Winter Carnival, all things cold are celebrated. One event stands out and gives attendees a way to escape to the tropics without even getting on a plane; the Winter Carnival Orchid Show at the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory on January 26 and 27, 2019. Hundreds of orchid plants owned by the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory, as well as individual members of the Orchid Society of Minnesota, affiliated orchid societies and commercial orchid growers, will transform the Conservatory into a tropical wonderland where instead of King Boreas, orchids rule. Come see orchids in a tropical setting, learn about orchid culture from the Orchid Society of Minnesota members and vendors, and have the ability to purchase quality orchids from the excellent vendors.

The Orchid Society of Minnesota and the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory work together to exhibit the largest display of privately owned orchids in the region. The Winter Carnival Orchid Show is an American Orchid Society (AOS) judged event. Orchid judges from throughout the Midwest travel to Saint Paul to bestow awards and points.

Now in its 45th year, the Winter Carnival Orchid Show has become the premier winter event for orchid lovers throughout the Midwest, attended by nearly 5,000 orchid enthusiasts. Perhaps in response to those long cold winters, Minnesotans are avid plants-men and women and welcome the chance to see and purchase something out of the ordinary.

Orchid plants and orchid-related items will be for sale from the following vendors: Arnold J. Klehm Growers, Inc, Deerwood Orchids, Ingram’s Better Orchid Books, Mans Farms, Natt’s Orchids, New World Orchids, Orchids Limited, Sophie's Orchids and Ten Shin Gardens (direct from Taiwan).

Orchids are the largest family of flowering plants. One of the oldest and best organized of plant hobbies, orchid culture now enjoys worldwide popularity. Their incredible beauty and diversity captivate men, women and children of every walk of life.

The Winter Carnival Orchid Show will be held on January 26 and 27 at the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory at Como Park Zoo and Conservatory in Saint Paul from 10:00am to 4:00pm. Admission is $5 for adults and $3 for children ages 3-12 ($1 off admission for Como Friends Members or for visitors with Winter Carnival button). Admission fee for the Winter Carnival Orchid Show is required to enter the Conservatory on January 26 and 27.

Due to the narrow pathways and large crowds, there will be no photo permits available during the Winter Carnival Orchid Show. We apologize for any inconvenience.
