Fall Bonsai Show: Meijer Gardens welcomes a beautiful, small art practice

Sat., Oct. 6, 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. and Sun., Oct. 7, 11 a.m. - 5 p.m.
While this season’s leaf peepers have yet to arrive as we await the arrival of the beautiful fall colors to fill our vision, this weekend, you can see another forest through the trees at the annual Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park’s Fall Bonsai Show.

If you have never attended, you are really missing a wonderfully inspiring event that is good for children of all ages (and I am including myself) as this living art form is sure to spark the imagination of any who attend.

The art of bonsai comes from trees who have been crafted to remain tiny (in comparison to their wild counterparts).

At this free event, you will have a chance to see trees in their early stages of training, as well as some award-winning lovely older trees brought to us by the members of the West Michigan Bonsai Club

This event also allows one a chance to not only observe the artists at work, but should you have questions about starting your own tree at home, purchase the items you will need to get started.

And by attending, you will also have a chance to vote for which entry at this event is the best in the region. If we are lucky, some of these trees might even have the first markings of fall. Trust me, if you have not witnessed a bonsai tree in fall colors, then you must place that on your bucket list of to-see items. 

Either way, get out to the Fall Bonsai Show as it is one of the most exciting events they host all year at the Gardens.
