Return of the Orchids! The Santa Barbara International Orchid Festival is back after the pandemic

Lance Orozco
The Santa Barbara International Orchid Show is returning to the community since the first time since 2019.

75th anniversary event is also the first show since 2019.

After three years of cancellations due to the pandemic, one of the world’s premiere orchid shows is returning to Santa Barbara County.

The Santa Barbara International Orchid Show will take place at the Earl Warren Showgrounds March 10 through 12.

It’s one of the oldest and largest orchid events in the United States. It features plants from local growers, as well as plant and vendors from around the world.

It will also be a very special show, because it marks the event’s 75th anniversary.
