Special Access Event

Opulent Orchids

Special Access events at Como Park Zoo & Conservatory are our way of saying thank you for supporting Como Friends.

Opulent Orchids | Sunday, January 28, 2024 | 8:30 AM–10:00 AM

Immerse yourself in the Orchid Society of Minnesota’s mesmerizing display of blooms that harnesses the enchanting ambiance of the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory, then shop the stunning variety of orchids available for purchase.

Como Friends’ Winter Carnival Orchid Show event will start with entry in the Ordway Gardens Bonsai Pavilion. You’ll follow a one-way path as you view the beautiful displays of orchids arrayed throughout the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory. Your visit will end in the Visitor Center where orchid plants and supplies will be available for purchase after 9:00 a.m. Remember to stop in Garden Safari Gifts too, then visit Como Zoo when it opens at 10:00 a.m.

We’re excited to announce that the doors will open for Opulent Orchids at 8:30 a.m. Select your entry time between 8:30 and 9:45 a.m. Guests arriving later will have as much time to view the orchids as those arriving earlier—though the event officially ends at 10:00, you can take your time admiring the orchid displays.
