Calendar of Council Events, Holiday Closures, and Club Events

Annually Council sponsors a competitive, judged flower show at the Garden Center, open to anyone who would like to enter and exhibit.

Fairs and plant sales are held throughout the year and give gardeners a chance to purchase locally grown and proven plants, as well as the newest introductions. The Center hosts garden club meetings and special events, and can be rented for private weddings, meetings and parties.

Each year the Council is primarily responsible for organizing and staging the New Mexico State Fair Flower Shows. There are usually from four to six shows, plus special educational exhibits and demonstrations.
