The Santa Barbara International Orchid Show is the oldest and one of the largest orchid shows in the United States. Visitors delight in exuberant displays of blooming orchids, with exhibits designed to each year’s show theme. A step into the Exhibit Hall is a step into the lush colors and fragrances of exotic, beautiful orchids.

In addition to the lavish garden displays of orchids for which the Show is famous, floral arrangements and corsages feature orchid blooms on an intimate scale. The artistically minded will enjoy the work of area artists showcased in the juried Art Show, managed by the Santa Barbara Art Association.

For visitors who wish to take home a souvenir, the extensive Vendor Hall hosts regional and international vendors selling blooming orchid plants, growing supplies, and orchid-related art.
