Volunteer Park conservatory
Seattle’s historic Volunteer Park Conservatory houses a world-class botanical collection which is carefully curated in the Conservatory’s five display houses.

The architecture and history of the century-old structure stands as a reminder of a bygone Victorian age.

This beautiful setting serves as a magnificent backdrop to the NW Orchid Society's Show and Sale.

Members of the public are encouraged to bring orchids from home for a repotting service and/or advice for struggling orchids. Knowledgeable volunteers from the Northwest Orchid Society will be available to answer questions for show attendees.

Several vendors, both local and visiting from out of state, will have a fine selection of orchids available for purchase. The plants for sale range from excellent quality beginner level plants for the home to rare collectable specimens.

A complete list of vendors and show schedule will be posted on the society’s website and on the Northwest Orchid Society Facebook page.
