After a year lapse due to Covid-19, Kannapolis is back bigger and better than ever. Bigger is obvious... but better? Better is because I now live about 20 miles away :) Looking forward to meeting many new East Coast bonsai peeps!

This is the 8th year for this nationally recognized show. It is held in what is likely the most elegant location for a bonsai show - a 4 story marble lined atrium. Many say this is their favorite show of the year, where trees are exhibited in their winter best form. Exhibitors and vendors come from all over the country. Demos by world-class bonsai artists. Bonsai auction Saturday evening. Banquet dinner by reservation Saturday evening.

@Bonsai Nut we should all wear BNut name tags so we can know who is who? I've been talking to a lot of members here for years, but have no clue on matching a BNut member by face.
I’ve had several people come up to me at shows and introduce themselves as BNut members.

The Kannapolis show is small enough that you could meet everyone there individually.

If I see you at the show I will know who you are as well. There's plenty of pics of you on here to put a face to a name. Many of us do not have facial pics of us on here.

Whoa, a three-dimensional bonsai show? Is that even allowed?

You’ll probably recognize the tree as well! I don’t know which tree I’ll bring yet.

I always exhibit on the same table. Or, so it seems. The tables are assigned in advance.
