I am so sad I missed this. If you can believe it, on Thursday I stopped into Asheville to have lunch at Tupelo Honey on my way to a family reunion in the mountains. My parents were celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary, so bonsai was a lower priority... this visit. Great to see so much passion! Asheville is amazing!

Is there a spread sheet somewhere with all the past show winners?

I apologize for bringing this question up, but I am about to book a cabin for Asheville in June of next year. Does anyone know when the expo is next year? If so I can make sure I’m there for it.

Re do you think they are better than osakazuki?
Osakazuki is coarse branched and foliated. This is my experience even in a garden setting. They make nice big specimen trees and respond well to espalier training.

The Asheville Bonsai Expo has moved to I believe June, but someone can chime in. Hotels are crazy expensive during fall color season, and this will help mitigate that issue for all who attend from out of town.

I support the decision, but it is pretty darn beautiful that weekend every year there.

Well I support the reason to do it mainly so I can attend Burnpile next year, which is a really amazing beer festival in asheville, but I wonder if World bonsai day will still be in May or if they will change that event or get rid of it?

The last 3 years my wife and I have vacationed in October in Asheville. She intentionally scheduled it so I could attend the Bonsai show. This year I agreed to go on June and skip the show. Now it looks like I’m in luck...and if there’s a beer festival at the same time...fantastic ..
