Save Your Pennies… & Dollars Too!



Come join us on September 11-12, 2021 for the 7th US National Bonsai Exhibition in Rochester, New York.

In addition to over 200 museum quality bonsai, suiseki and kusamono there will be an indoor soccer field packed full of vendors from throughout the United States. Over 40 select vendors have been carefully picked to offer visitors an extensive selection of bonsai, pre-bonsai, collected trees, containers, tools, suiseki as well as other items to add to your bonsai collection and to enhance your appreciation of the art.

Plus, six demonstrations by top bonsai artists as well as 20 critiques. Watch and learn from skilled artists sharing their techniques during the demonstrations. The critiques are held twice daily so you can attend more than one artist’s opinions of the bonsai and suiseki. All FREE with paid admission. Weekend Passes $50 by August 15th, Daily admission $30. 

The doors open on Saturday, September 11th at 9am, NOT on Friday, so please don’t come early for best selection. The general public will not be permitted entrance until Saturday morning. Only vendors will be allowed in the building after 12 noon on Friday after the exhibitors set up their displays. Don’t worry there will be plenty of good items for sale on Saturday and Sunday.


On Saturday afternoon we will have a Benefit Bonsai Auction including some of the demonstration trees. People often contribute extra bonsai and items to this fun auction. Following the auction the Award Banquet will take place at the official exhibition hotel where exhibitors anxiously await the announcement of the prize winning bonsai and presentation of cash awards.

Make your travel and hotel accommodations now. Meet long-time bonsai friends and make new friends during the exhibition. With the lack of bonsai gatherings in 2020, this year promises to have large turnout.
