This year our 35th Annual Bonsai Show and Sale will be open to the public on Saturday November 5th from 9AM to 5PM and on Sunday November 6th from 9AM to 4PM. Free admission and free parking. The show will be held at the Berne Davis Gardens in Fort Myers, FL. This location is just north of the Edison Ford Winter Estates on McGregor Blvd. For those who will use Garmin-like devices, the address of the show is 2166 Virginia Ave., Fort Myers, FL 33901, but please be advised that all public parking will be on Larchmont Ave. which is just to the south of the Gardens, and is directly north of the Edison-Ford estates. Easy to find. This new venue has been recently remodeled by the Fort Myers-Lee County Garden Council and the gardens offer very pleasant walkways through the surrounding gardens. We have arranged for food and drinks from a local vendor, so we encourage you to eat, shop and join in the many workshops and demonstrations in addition to seeing a world-class display of Bonsai artistry from around the country, especially by many of the talented artists who live here and display their tropical varieties that thrive so well here.

We had an amazing show with the work of many great artists. The attendance was excellent at the exhibit as well as at the demonstrations and vendor tables.
