About Orchids & Art

The Mid-America Orchid Congress holds two events per year. One in the Spring and one in the Fall. The event features folks from an 18 state region and Ontario Canada. They gather to learn from world renowned orchid experts, socialize, share experiences, and of course have the chance to purchase unusual orchids not found in your local Kroger store.

The event is usually held in conjunction with local orchid societies. October 18,19, & 20 2013 the Miami Valley Orchid Society of Dayton and The Greater Cincinnati Orchid Society will host this event. It doesn't come often to the Cincinnati/Dayton area. In fact it hasn't been here for more than 4 years.

There are a variety of events including an orchid show, preview party, seminars, and orchid sales. Please take a look at our speakers, schedule of events, and registration information. Some events are free and other require advanced registration. Please find what interests you and register soon since early registration receives a discount.

Oh! Did I mention that this rare event is being held this fall at the beautiful Dayton Art Institute? Double your pleasure double you fun in October this year.

The event to be held at The Dayton Art Institute October 19-20, 3013. The event features a Friday 18th preview show
