Redland International Orchid Festival

The Redland Orchid Festival grew out of a desire to add one more sales event at the end of the spring show season.

Another year and another successful Redland International Orchid Festival is behind us. By all accounts, 2019 may have been the most successful and well-attended event in its 23 year history. Mild weather made spending the day at the Fruit and Spice Park a pleasure. On Saturday the doyenne of home entertaining, Martha Stewart, dropped by for a tour of the festival. Read her writeup here.

Have a wonderful summer full of orchid happiness!
