Cactus & succulent societies hold seasonal plant sales several times throughout the 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 featuring amazing specimen plants—sometimes judged by plant experts, sometimes by the public—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.
