2022 Dahlia Show

The 56rd Annual Dahlia Show of the Greater Columbus Dahlia Society is free and open to the general public from 1 to 5 PM on Saturday, September 3 and from 1 to 4 PM on Sunday, September 4. Top dahlia growers in the mid-west will compete for recognition and cash prizes in dozens of categories.  Hundreds of spectacular blooms of all types of dahlias as well as artistic arrangements featuring dahlias will be on display for both days.  The show is being held at the Marysville YMCA, 1150 Charles Lane, Marysville OH 43040.

Members and non-members of the GCDS are welcome to enter their blooms, floral arrangements and photographs.

A special award of $150 will again be offered for the best Zorro in honor of Wilbur Seipel.  It is not a separate class; the best Zorro will be selected from among all Zorros entered in the Show.

A special award (not special class) for the best Marcella Louise of $150 will be sponsored by Jim Chuey.  Jim will also sponsor a special award (not a special class) of $150 for the best Carl.
