The St. Paul Winter Carnival Orchid Show will bloom again January 26 and 27 at the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory. King Boreas’ favorite flower show is also a must-see for orchid enthusiasts from around the midwest. Combining the best of Como’s own orchid collection with the brightest blooms from members of The Orchid Society of Minnesota, this judging event for the American Orchid Society is the largest annual display of privately held plants in the region.

Enjoy refreshments, view the award-winning orchids, and chat with orchid experts from the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory and the Orchid Society of Minnesota.
