2014 is the year of the 31st annual Connecticut Cactus and Succulent Show and Sale, to be held in its usual location at Naugatuck Valley Community College. The event will run Saturday April 5, 10:00-5:00 and Sunday April 6, 10:00-4:00. More information is available from the Connecticut Cactus and Succulent Society. Parking is abundant and admission is free.
It's always a fun time, and every year we get a large number of repeat guests coming in from all over the Northeast, to see an extensive judged show, numerous vendors, informative lectures and demonstrations, auctions filled with rare plants and rare bargains, and (primarily?) to meet and chat with other fans of unusual desert plants.
