Chicago Orchid Show
A Magnificent Morning at the Chicago Orchid Show
Tuesday, March 5, 2019 - $106
Held at the Chicago Botanic Gardens in Glencoe, the Chicago Orchid Show is the largest show of its kind in the Midwest, and provides an oasis of beauty and vibrant color just as winter concludes.
The greenhouses and gallery will be packed with more than 10,000 orchids in bloom, featuring an array of hybrids varying in color, size and shape. The garden's greenhouses recreate the natural habitat of orchids with cascading and climbing varieties growing on trees and rocks and featuring brilliant and fragrant blooms.
See fabulous artwork and educational exhibits where you learn about the breadth of diversity in the orchid plant family and how some species can alter their appearance over time.
Before we enter the show you will be treated to a delightful breakfast in a private area for our group featuring an upgraded menu complete with such items as scones, croissants, quiche, cherry wood smoked bacon, sausage, breakfast potatoes and cinnamon roll french toast!
We’ll also enjoy the garden’s special “Morning Music” program in Nichols Hall where we’ll have reserved seating for the show in the hall’s tranquil setting. Duos, harpists, acoustical guitarists and flutists are just some of the quality entertainment which is often featured.
You’ll also have time to visit the Garden Shop where you can purchase mini-orchids, orchid pots, books, and jewelry and an exclusive line of orchid-illustrated home accessories and kitchenware.
