Support the Dahlia Show

The Dahlia Show relies on the generous support of sponsors in order to offer the Show at no cost to the visiting public and to award the many exhibitors who bring blooms for judging and display. Last year we were able to open our doors to some 400 visitors including many families with children - who were delighted by the spectacle of 900 dahlias in the most amazing array of forms and colors.

Please consider donating at one of the following levels:

$50: Sponsors will be acknowledged by cards for every category displayed at the Show. 

$100:   The higher awards (King, Queen, Prince, Princess & Duke of Show) will be named in honor of sponsors at this level. 

$150 or above: Sponsors will be recognized as sponsoring the 7 major trophies awarded in the Show
