Each year, since 1972, the Rocky Mountain Bonsai Society (RMBS) has held an annual Fathers' Day Show. The first show's bonsai trees were from the Denver Bonsai Club, which was a Japanese-only speaking organization formed in 1960. In 1969, an English speaking club was formed and was called the Denver Junior Bonsai club. The two clubs came together in 1972 and held its first public bonsai show.
In 1983 the Junior Bonsai club changed its name to the Rocky Mountain Bonsai Society and it has continued the tradition of having an annual public show at the Denver Botanic Garden. This year, 2013, marks our 41st Anniversary!.
This year, the show is held in Denver Botanic Gardens' famed Mitchel Hall. It starts on Saturday, June 15th and goes through Sunday, June 16th. More than 80 plus bonsai trees are being exhibitied. The show is free to the public and only a small fee is charged to enter the Denver Botanic Gardens.
