Sacramento Cactus and Succulent Show

It’s no wonder that succulents are so wildly popular. These pretty little plants are low maintenance, they come in all sorts of colors, shapes and sizes and you can even use their cuttings to grow—you guessed it—more succulents! Every May, the Sacramento Cactus and Succulent Society (yeah, that’s a thing) holds their Annual Show and Sale, which features both an exhibition of members’ most prized specimens, as well as a plant sale with an impressive selection of succulents. This year the show is happening on Saturday, May 7 and Sunday, May 8 at Shepard Garden and Arts Center, located at 3330 McKinley Boulevard, starting at 9 a.m. each day. Get there early, because the first 50 guests each day get a free plant! Admission and parking are both free and there will even be plant seminars throughout the day. Visit for more info on the club and be sure to check out their monthly newsletter called Thorny Issues for upcoming meetups, field trips and succulent/cactus tips.
