P1180459Since our first annual show in 1946, our club members have been passionate about bringing together both novice and experienced growers to promote the growing and exhibition of this fun, versatile flower. Though the names and faces have changed a lot in the past 70 years, we are still going strong today, in 2017!

We have three popular annual events: our May tuber and plant sales and our August dahlia show. This website provides information about BSDS membership, meetings, events and shows. It also features photos of dahlias and our club events, as well as links to learn about dahlia cultivation.

If you’d like to learn more about dahlias, we welcome you to join us at any of our meetings. We look forward to meeting you!
