A special flower event returns to Inner Southeast Portland, and features dahlias

DAVID F. ASHTON - It was growing in his yard in the Foster-Powell neighborhood: Portland Dahlia Society President Larry Smith shows a dahlia named Beginners Luck, which was hybridized by a club member in the Reed neighborhood. Hundreds of prize-winning blooms will be on display at the Pacific NW Dahlia Show on the weekend of August 26-27, inside the historic Oaks Amusement Park Dance Pavilion.

"This show will fill the building with dahlia blooms competing for 'Best in Show', arrangements, and special classes for new hybridized varieties," explained Portland Dahlia Society President Larry Smith. "There will be informational workshops offered and experts available to answer questions."

Growers from Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and British Columbia will be bringing their flowers to this show – which is sanctioned by the American Dahlia Society.

The show hours are from 12 noon to 5 p.m. on Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Sunday. The show, and the parking, are free.
