The Denver Orchid Society Show typically take place in the spring. Past shows have been held at the Denver Botanic Gardens and at local nurseries in the Denver-metro area.
There are many show volunteering opportunities available for DOS members. It is a great way to learn more about orchids and make new friends.
The American Orchid Society is also a great source of information for Orchid Shows in the U.S. and around the world.
