Midwest Bonsai Society 16th Annual May Bonsai Exhibit
A newer tradition for the Midwest Bonsai Society is the May Bonsai Exhibit. Started in 2004, the show is smaller than the August Bonsai Exhibition but is well worth the trip to view the displays of trees. The Garden Bonsai trees will be displayed in the two courtyards. Vendors will offer an amazing selection of trees, accent plants, pots, stands, tools and Bonsai books and literature. There will also be workshops, including a children’s workshop, and bonsai demonstrations.
The May Exhibit is held in the Burnstein Hall of the Regenstein Center at the Chicago Botanic Garden. The theme of the show is education. Members are invited to bring trees in various stages of training, accompanied by explanations of what processes are being used.
There is no fee to attend, but regular parking rates apply for entry into the Chicago Botanic Garden.
