The Midwest Bonsai Society August Exhibition has a long history, going into its 46th year in 2024. It is one of the largest regional shows in the nation. Centered at the Chicago Botanic Garden’s Permanent Bonsai Collection featuring over 150 world-class trees, it’s a showplace of Bonsai from across the Midwest and beyond. National enthusiasts bring their trees to be judged in the main hall at the Garden’s Regenstein Center. Our Guest Judge is Jack Sustic, former Curator of the National Bonsai & Penjing Museum at the U.S. National Arboretum in Washington DC. There will be 30 vendors selling trees, tools, pots, stands, suiseki, scrolls, soil, fertilizers, etc. There will also be plenty of workshops and lectures, including a Children’s Bonsai Styling workshop.
