Small Standard Flower Show to be held March 25 in Dade City
The Dade City Garden Club is proud to present a National Garden Club (NGC) Small Standard Flower Show on Saturday, March 25, 2023, from 10 am to 3 pm at the garden club center, 13630 5th Street in Dade City. Free and open to the public, “Dade City—Still Growing” is the theme that will be interpreted through judged horticulture, floral design, and educational displays created by members of the Club.
The purpose of an NGC Flower Show is to educate club members and the viewing public; to stimulate interest in horticulture and floral design; to provide an outlet for creative expression; and to communicate NGC goals and objectives.
The Design Division of the show will present floral designs interpreting the “Gems of Dade City”, which focuses on the places and things to see and do in town. The Horticulture Division will feature places in Dade City to experience plants, flowers, and gardening. An Educational Division will depict Dade City’s special designations.
National Garden Club Small Standard Flower Show and Garden Market Bazaar to be held March 25 in Dade City by the Dade City Garden Club
Visitors to the Small Standard Flower Show in Dade City will be able to cast their vote to choose the winner of the 2023 People’s Choice Ribbon in Design. In addition to the Flower Show attraction itself, attendees will also be able to shop at the Garden Market Bazaar, which will be held in conjunction with the flower show on the garden club grounds from 10 am to 3 pm. The Bazaar will feature assorted vendors, crafts, food, and prizes. Club members also want to tell everyone to bring their knives, scissors, yard and other tools for professional sharpening at the event.
The Dade City Garden Club has a long and respected history of hosting flower shows. The founding members presented their first show in March of 1949, less than one year after the Dade City Garden Club was accepted for federation with the Florida Federation of Garden Clubs. Following that first event was a succession of many more shows over the years, several of which won outstanding honors within the garden club community.
The Dade City Garden Club is especially grateful to this year’s Blue Ribbon Sponsors: San Antonio Citizens Federal Credit Union and Karen Stridiron, Charles Rutenberg Realty.
