This year’s Bonsai Show will be larger, more inspiring, and more exciting than ever before! During our show, the American Bonsai Society joins us to present Bonsai in the Garden Learning Seminars. This national gathering will attract bonsai artists, enthusiasts, and some of the nation’s top presenters. Many stunning bonsai will be displayed in the Huizenga Grand Room, Friday through Sunday. On Friday only: A New-Talent Contest will feature a special display by emerging bonsai artists.

A large selection of bonsai trees and pots and an assortment of bonsai soils, fertilizers, tools, books, and wire will be available for purchase from vendors coming from across the country. Free demonstrations will be led by bonsai artists, including this year’s internationally renowned and National Bonsai Award-winning Bonsai Show guest artist, Suthin Sukosolvisit, who will demonstrate pruning, wiring, and other styling techniques. Thailand-born Suthin has extensive experience with tropical bonsai and expertise in Japanese maple, juniper, azalea, black pine, and much more. He will teach a Bring Your Own Tree workshop during the show. Additional workshops, designed for all skill levels, are available during the weekend. A variety of Meijer Gardens workshops will be offered on Sunday. Register early, as workshops fill quickly!
