San Francisco Bay Area Plant Sales, Shows & Events

Cactus & succulent societies hold seasonal plant sales one or more times per year. These sales are a great way to enhance your plant collection with uncommon or rare plants that are not found at plant nurseries. Sales also include a Show by members of amazing specimen plants—sometimes judged by plant experts -- which have inspired many visitors to become involved in the hobby of collecting and growing succulents. Bring your camera!

Below is a calendar of upcoming succulent & cacti plant sales and events this year in the San Francisco bay area and beyond. This list will be updated as new dates are added later in the year.
