The Grand Strand Camellia Society in association with the American Camellia Society and the Atlantic Coast Camellia Society will sponsor its sixteenth Annual Camellia Show on January 11 and 12, 2020.

This is promising to be quite an event and one that the community and surrounding areas will be able to view, enjoy and by so doing will add to the culture of camellias in our community. As in the past, exhibitors from all over the Southeast from Virginia to Florida and west to Georgia will be attending and showing their camellias. All local camellia growers are also cordially invited and encouraged to exhibit their blooms.

The shows normally average over one thousand camellia blooms. There is also a special category and award for the best local blooms and for novices (first time exhibitor).

This year’s show is scheduled for Jan. 11 and 12, 2020 from 1p.m. to 5p.m. at the Inlet Square Mall, 12125 Highway 17 Bypass in Murrells Inlet. There will also be a fine variety of camellias for presale now and during the show.

Admission to the show is always free and for further details, please contact Mack McKinnon at (843)995-1256.
