New York Orchid Show Summary

Event Overview: NY Orchid Show was an annual convention dedicated to flora that was held in April. It was put on by the Greater New York Orchid Society and was held at Rockefeller Center Skating Rink in Midtown Manhattan. The NY Orchid Show unfortunately shut down its operations after its 2007 show.

What to Expect: NY Orchid Show ran for 27 years and drew in a crowd that reached six-digits each year with its lovely display of plants from show entrants as well as its assorted number of orchid vendors.

  • Cash prizes: Members of the Greater NY Orchid Society that entered their plants into the show contest had a chance to win some exciting cash prizes that awarded them for their hard work on their passion.
  • Convention: The NYC Orchid Show featured a ton of vendors, workshops, and other panels for professionals and hobbyists alike to learn more about plants.
  • Rockefeller Center: The NY Orchid Show was also held at the ice rink in Rockefeller Center, making it a nice and central location to many great restaurants and attractions in Manhattan.

Inside Knowledge: For reasons that were undisclosed, the Greater New York Orchid Society put the NY Orchid Show on permanent hiatus before their 2008 show. The announcement was seen on their society web site.

Event Hints:

  • Look Up Info on the Society: While the NY Orchid Show no longer takes place, you can still look up information on the Greater New York Orchid Society if you would like to join them.
  • Check Out New York Botanical Garden: If you want to see some nice plants on display, then check out the New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx which has a wide variety of plantlife on display.
  • Brooklyn Botanical Garden: If you can't get enough flora, then check out the Brooklyn Botanical Garden as well, which also holds regular events such as the Cherry Blossom Festival.
