Bonsai Fest! features the Puget Sound Bonsai Association (PSBA) annual spring show. View the club members’ bonsai, ask questions, watch bonsai-making demonstrations, and cast your vote for ‘best in show.’ See Tony Fajarillo–silver medal winning ‘Pot Party’ bonsai garden creator from the 2018 Northwest Flower and Garden Show–demonstrate the art of bonsai at 1:00 pm, May 12. Frank Heidt–longtime friend and student of Dan Robinson of Elandan Gardens–will do a bonsai demonstration at 1:00 pm May 13.


Visit our pop-up shop to
buy your own bonsai, bonsai pots, bonsai books, and other gift items. You can
also enter a free drawing to win a bonsai tree.


Create a gift for Mom! An art station will be available to kids
and adults who want to get creative and make cards for mom. On Mother’s
Day–Sunday May 13– local poet Alexandria Manalo will be on-site from 11am to
2pm to write complimentary, personalized poems for moms and other loved ones.
Visitors can also pose at a bonsai selfie-station to take a photo with mom or
snap a pic to share with her.


While you’re here, see ‘Living Art of Bonsai: Elements of
Design,’ our 2018 special exhibit that compares bonsai with other works of art
and reveals the secrets of good bonsai design, breaking-down how exactly bonsai
artists make tiny trees appear big, old, and interesting. Free, docent-led
tours of the exhibit begin at 12 noon and 2:00 pm, both days. (Advance
registration is not required.)
