This weekend, 26 & 27 Oct, is the annual Capital City Bonsai Show. Hosted by all four bonsai clubs in Sacramento, it raises money to support the Golden State Bonsai Federation collection at Lake Merritt, Oakland (pictured above), housing some of California’s oldest bonsai trees (http://www.gsbf-bonsai.org/lake-merritt/NewHome.htm).
Saturday, the show runs 10 – 5 with a social afterwards, and Sunday from 10-4. There will be club hosted demos each day at 1:30. I am fairly sure this is a FREE event. For more information contact Gary Judd at 916-622-8048.
Admission to see the Lake Merrit collection is free, and the SoCal collection is at Huntingtion Gardens.
Bonsai clubs in Sac’to:
