Orchid show

27th annual Fiesta de las Flores – March 5 and 6, 2022

We plan to have our usual in person orchid show and sale at Mesquite Valley Growers Nursery pending Covid complications. Please check back for more details.


26th annual Fiesta de las Flores – March 27, 2021

Our March 2021 public orchid show was canceled due to Covid 19 so we decided to have a little fun with a virtual show instead. People created orchid displays at home over a several month period and submitted photos or video entries. Entry dates give the day the entry was photographed. There is no show sale this year. Enjoy!
