Midwest Dahlia Conference Show 2018

The Dahlia Society of Ohio is pleased to serve as the host for the 84th Annual Midwest Dahlia Conference Show. The festivities will take place at the Cleveland-Strongsville Holiday Inn on the weekend of September 7-9, 2018. The hotel is conveniently located near the intersection of the Ohio Turnpike and I-71 on the near west side of Cleveland. (GPS: 15471 Royalton Road, Strongsville, OH 44136) The set-up area for the show is readily accessible from the unloading area as well as the show tables.

All of the weekend's events will be located at the hotel. A special room rate of $112 has been arranged. That rate includes two complimentary breakfasts per room per day. You will need to register before August 17 to get that rate. See the registration form and contact the hotel at 1-877-408-4913 for your reservations. Refer to the Midwest Dahlia Flower Show or the group code of DFS.

You can register for the show using the form printed in this ADS Bulletin or a printable form that is available on the DSO website, dahliasocietyofohio.org. Please mail the form and the registration fee as soon as possible. Note that the registration fee increases after August 17. The complete schedule for the show will be on our website.

The Flower of the Year is Kenora Wildfire. We plan to provide a large number of Kenora Wildfire plants grown from G1 (virus free) stock for the Midwest auction. The stock has produced excellent blooms in the past.

We will have a large boutique, featuring homemade dahlia crafts, at the show. We look forward to seeing you!
