Theme for the show, now in its 63rd year, is “Thrill of Discovery”. It’s sponsored by the San Francisco Orchid Society.

The show’s presenting sponsor, the Taiwan Tourism Bureau, has worked with Tom Perlite, the owner of Golden Gate Orchids and operations manager of the Pacific Orchid Exposition, to ship and cultivate rare orchids, such as Cymbidium goeringii and Anoectochilus formosanus, which will be on display throughout the event.

Considered the largest orchid show in the United States, the Pacific Orchid Exposition will feature over 150,000 beautiful orchids from across the globe. Throughout the weekend there will be docent tours, orchid potting demonstrations and special lectures.

Tickets are $15 at the door.
