BSF Members’ Bonsai at EPCOT

by Paul Pikel,

In our 26th year, the BSF has welcomed applications from Florida’s bonsai artists for consideration of their tree for display. Over this time the number of entries and the tree quality has increased making this exhibit truly a World Showcase of Bonsai.

The Bonsai Societies of Florida have had the finest opportunity to make this happen in one of the best showcases available, the Flower and Garden Festival at Epcot. In cooperation with Walt Disney World, the BSF has displayed year after year outstanding selections of trees from Florida. The attendance of this Festival has increased dramatically each year, and the Bonsai display in the Japanese Pavilion is the highlight for many of the park visitors.

The 2020 Flower and Garden Festival will run for 3 months, starting in early March  and ending in late May. Along with the application you will find the specifics of the tree requirements and all other information needed to properly submit your tree. The BFS-Epcot Committee looks forward to hearing from all of you, and wishes you all the best of luck during the selection process.

You must be a paid member of Bonsai Societies of Florida when submitting your application and while your tree is displayed in order to participate.
