US NATIONAL BONSAI EXHIBITION POSTPONED
Regrettably, due to the health and travel issues cause by the COVID-19 Virus the 2020 7th US National Bonsai Exhibition has been postponed to September 11-12, 2021.
It has always been our desire to produce the finest bonsai exhibition in the United States. The worsening conditions surrounding the pandemic has made it difficult to maintain the high standards we have established.
Deciding to postpone the Exhibition was an extremely difficult decision based on the safety of the bonsai community. I nervously waited until now, hoping for an improvement. Although the conditions in New York State are improving limited space capacity for gathering are in place. Unfortunately the conditions of the rest of our country are rapidly deteriorating, making traveling most difficult and unsafe.
I did my best to organize our 7th US National Bonsai Exhibition and tried, very, very hard to pull it off making changes due to health concerns, state mandates, banquet venue closing (but did find an alternative,) exhibitors, vendors and visitors safely traveling to Rochester, but could not.
Additional information for exhibitors and vendors will be soon forthcoming.
Bonsai meetings, exhibits and conventions have been cancelled throughout the world because of the pandemic and we need a “bonsai fix” which the Exhibition would have provided.
For those who feel safe to travel and need to see bonsai, we will be hosting a special Open House event on September 12-13, 2020. Details to be soon announced.
I hope you and your family remain safe and healthy during this most unusual, unprecedented time of our lives and I look forward to welcoming you to the 7th US National Bonsai Exhibition next September 11-12, 2021.
