Get ready to immerse yourself in the mesmerizing world of orchids at the SF County Fair Building in Golden Gate Park.

We thank Oakville Ranch Winery, our premier sponsor, for supporting the San Francisco Orchid Society and this event, and for donating wine for the Preview Night fundraiser from 6:00pm-9:00pm on Thursday February 15th. At the Preview night, adult (21 years+) attendees will have their first chance to purchase plants, bid on items in the silent auction, and see the displays while enjoying live entertainment, wine and hors d'œuvres.
