Our August Exhibition has a long history, going into its 45th year in 2023. It is one of the largest regional shows in the nation. Centered on the Chicago Botanic Garden’s Permanent Bonsai Collection, featuring over 150 world-class trees, it’s a showplace of trees from across the Midwest and beyond. Enthusiasts from across the country bring their trees to be judged in the main hall at the Garden’s Regenstein Center. World-renowned Bonsai artist, Bjorn Bjorholm is our Guest Judge. There will be 30 vendors selling trees, tools, pots, soil, fertilizers, etc. There will also be workshops and lectures, including a Children’s Bonsai Styling workshop.
