The Orchid Show 2016 at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden

More thrilling than ever, the 14th annual Orchid Show transports visitors on a journey through orchid collecting history, each moment playing out against a stunning backdrop of thousands of orchids. Discover the far-flung adventures of orchid hunters swept up in 19th-century "orchidelirium," when explorers risked life and limb to secure these captivating flowers from jungles around the world. Then learn about NYBG's efforts to rescue illegally collected orchids that have been seized at international borders. Dance performances, a poetry reading, orchid care demonstrations, and shopping fill the daylight hours, while the return of our popular Orchid Evenings ensures many memorable celebrations after the sun has set.
