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. 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. Hundreds of blooming orchid plants will be displayed by the Orchid Society of Minnesota, Marjorie McNeely Conservatory, commercial orchid vendors and individual society members. These displays 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 our orchid society and vendors, and have the ability to purchase quality orchids and orchid related items from our excellent vendors.

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)

    Can I get a list of vendors. I somehow lost the business cards that I picked up. I know the two local ones, OrchidWeb and Sophie’s Orchids, but would like to know information on the out state vendors. Thank you.
