This is the smaller, more relaxed Dahlia show. The main purpose is to give growers and judges more experience but the public are welcome to tour the blooms for free. Exhibitors must be in good standing with the Minnesota Dahlia Society, the American Dahlia Society, or an American Dahlia Society affiliate.
The Heritage Room is in the back of the garden center, behind the shade plants, in the building where the Koi Fish are housed.
