Selby Gardens Orchid Show 2021

As the only botanical garden in the world dedicated to the display and study of orchids, bromeliads, gesneriads and ferns, epiphytes, and tropical plants, Selby Gardens hosts an orchid show each fall focusing on different themes and complimented by a variety of special lectures, classes, and events.

This years theme is Top to the Big Top and celebrates the breathtaking beauty of orchids in tree-top canopies high above the forest floor with the artistry and spectacle of the circus, particularly the aerialists who perform extraordinary feats of human ability high above captivated crowds which ties into Sarasota’s rich circus history.

In conjunction with the 2021 orchid show, SRQ Photo School is presenting two photography workshops:
