There was a great deal of disappointment last year because we were unable to hold our dahlia show due to Covid restrictions. Unless something unforeseen happens, we are happy to announce that the show will go on Saturday, September 11 from 3 to 7 p.m. and Sunday, September 12 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The show is open to the public at no charge. We are looking forward to sharing our love of dahlias with each other and our guests.
Long-time and first-time dahlia growers from Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Connecticut and New York will bring their best specimens to the show for all to see. Most of the 20-plus forms of dahlias will be represented in a glorious array of colors. And, aspiring floral designers will contribute arrangements that feature dahlias to the theme of Songs for Dahlia Lovers.
The dahlia show is open to all exhibitors. The only requirement is that exhibitors must read and adhere to the rules for entries as printed in the ADS 2019 Classification and Handbook of Dahlias. For the show schedule and list of prizes, go to 2021 RIDS Show Booklet.
We hope to see you there!
