Santa Barbara International Orchid Show

(805) 403-1533||https://sborchidshow.com/

The first Santa Barbara Orchid Show, organized by the Santa Barbara Horticultural Society under the direction of Bert Kallman, took place in 1945 at the Montecito Grange Hall. As orchid growing in the Santa Barbara area by both commercial growers and hobbyists continued to expand, the premier show was welcomed as an ideal showcase for the area’s top orchids.

In 1947, the show moved to the State Armory on Santa Barbara’s Eastside. The show moved to its present location, the Earl Warren Showgrounds, when the rotunda building opened in the early 1960s. Throughout the years, the rotunda and exhibitor hall have played host to some of the finest orchids in the world.
