Columbus Bonsai Society 50th Annual Bonsai Show!

This year the Columbus Bonsai Society will be hosting our 50th Annual Bonsai Show and we are making a big bash of it! While we have been spreading the news all around Ohio and beyond, we have also been at work behind the scenes to make this event special by securing. For starters, we have two prominent headliner artists – Jim Doyle and Chase Rosade – who will share their knowledge with audiences and critique exhibited trees. We also have more vendors planned for this show than ever before! These vendors include Mark Fields, Rob Hoffman, Ken Huth, Mark Passerello, Dan White, & April Grigsby. Many of our vendors have also generously agreed to participate in leading workshops and demonstrations for our visitors. Please see the detailed schedule below to register ahead and learn more. We also plan to include a raffle, a scavenger hunt/coloring handout for the little ones, a food truck, and more!
