The 2020 Annual Orchid Show & Sale was held on February 22nd and 23rd at the Naples Botanical Gardens, 4820 Bayshore Drive, Naples, FL. Show hours were Saturday and Sunday from 9am-5 pm both days. The theme for the 2020 show was ‘Wild About Orchids’.
Admission to the show was our membership(s) in the Naples Orchid Society, the Naples Botanical Garden, or the normal entrance fees taken by the garden.
The show featured prize-winning orchids of many species and hybrids. Card-table size and large floor-size artistic displays of blooming orchid plants, containers full of potted orchids and cut orchid flower arrangements competed for ribbons and awards.
American Orchid Society judges awarded outstanding single plants for best in show in a variety of classes. Information about the exhibits and plant competitions are contained in the rules and regulations for the show entries.
Only hobby grower members are eligible for the Naples Orchid Society awards, but anyone entering an individual orchid can be judged for AOS awards. If awarded, the owner of the plant has to pay for any AOS award, but can opt out of accepting AOS awards when registering the entry. (Click here for 2019 AOS Award winners)
Orchid vendors were presented at the show selling beautiful blooming orchids and orchid supplies. The vendors for the 2020 show were Florida SunCoast Orchids, Krull-Smith Orchids, Mac’s Orchids, Odoms Orchids, OFE International—Orchid Supplies, and Bactra Orchid Benches. NOS members hosted the show and were available to explain how to care for and grow all kinds of different orchids.

In 1999, The Turtle Club opened on the grounds of the Vanderbilt Beach Resort, transforming the landscape of waterfront dining in Naples. Specializing in fresh seafood, fine steaks and chops served in a spectacular beachfront setting, the restaurant quickly became a favorite “secret spot” for local Neapolitans. The secret has been out for some time now, and the restaurant consistently has been voted the area’s top restaurant for waterfront dining. With a focus on casually elegant fine dining, hospitable and caring staff, and outstanding food and wine, The Turtle Club wins rave reviews from loyal locals and out-of-state newcomers.
