Calendar/Event Details

Come all bonsai-fans and bonsai-curious to be wowed and inspired at Pacific Bonsai Museum’s fourth BonsaiFEST! on Saturday, May 13 and Sunday, May 14 (Mother’s Day weekend) from 10am to 4pm each day.

See hundreds of beautiful bonsai on exhibition in Pacific Bonsai Museum’s 2023 special exhibition, Avant-garden—showcasing bonsai artists pushing the botanic and artistic boundaries of bonsai like you’ve never seen before— and in the Puget Sound Bonsai Association (PSBA) Spring Show which includes a mame (“ma-may”) exhibition of the tiniest bonsai around.

Watch live bonsai-making demonstrations, take a Docent-led tour, or take an audio tour with your smartphone. Buy bonsai and bonsai merch from Robert Cho’s Asia Pacific Gardening and from Pacific Bonsai Museum’s pop-up shop featuring pins, stickers, books, cards, gifts, and more for the nature-lover.

Enjoy fun food and beverages from Yummy Catch and The Village Perk. Kids and families can use our Art Station with bonsai coloring sheets and have a bespoke poem written just for you. Activities and admission are free. (Suggested donation of $12 for those who are able to support the Museum.)
Free parking is available across from the Museum at the Garden Parking Lot.
