Local Society Virtual Shows

Many if not most local societies have cancelled their in-person shows due to COVID 19.  But some are determined to showcase their beautiful flowers via virtual shows on the Internet, Instagram, Facebook, and video platforms.
See a list of available virtual shows.

If your society has such a show and is not listed below, contact your ADS Representative to have your show listed.
