Our August Exhibition has the longest history, going into its 41st year in 2018. It is one of the largest regional shows in the nation. Centered on the Chicago Botanic Garden's Permanent Collection, featuring over 50 world-class trees, it’s a showplace of trees from across the Midwest and beyond. Enthusiasts from across the country bring their trees to be judged in the main hall at the Garden's Regenstein Center.

The 40th Annual Mid-America Exhibition was held in August 2017.  Looking for a recap of the Exhibition?  Please see our dedicated Review page which includes a gallery of ribbon-winning trees!

We also have a review of the 2015 Exhibit available with that year's winners.
