Our August Exhibition has the longest history, going into its 40th year in 2017. 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.

Visitors can take advantage of hotel discounts arranged by the Chicago Botanic Garden.  When making reservations tell the hotel you are in town to attend an event at the Garden. Suggested hotel accommodations can be found at the Chicago Botanic Garden's website.

Admission to the exhibit is free.  Parking fees for entrance to the Chicago Botanic Garden apply.  As always, Chicago Botanic Garden members park for free.
