Please note that the Shore Orchid Festival will be held in June this year. (June 10, 11, 12) We feel that this time change should give an opportunity for more pleasant weather here at the shore and will allow our customers a more comfortable climate in which to browse and enjoy themselves.

This event will feature twenty orchid vendors, with vendors coming from as far away as Japan. Please be sure to check out our vendor directory below for a complete list of participating sellers. The event will also feature workshops and lectures, covering a wide range of topics for both the novice and the advanced grower/collector. Schedule of lectures is being firmed up, and will be put onto this page in short order. A full line of orchids supplies will be sold at this event. We wish to make this a fun orchid event for everyone, you will be able to shop for orchids, visit with friends, old and new, enjoy good food from our on-site food vendors and have a great summer day or weekend at the Jersey Shore. Please feel free to contact us about hotel or Bed and Breakfast accommodations.

Keep in mind we are located 5 miles from the Jersey Shore, so now it is time to make any hotel, bed and breakfast, ect. reservation. A nice side benefit of moving the event to June is that this is not yet peak season, and reservation, (made in advance) should be more affordable.
