Annual Activities
South Carolina State Fair
Our chapter is invited to exhibit several arrangements to be on display during the South Carolina State Fair every fall. The arrangements are kept in place throughout the two weeks of the fair and are enjoyed by hundreds of visitors to the plant pavilion.

Orchids at the Zoo
The South Carolina Orchid Society provides the orchids that are used in six arrangements that are a part of the society’s display at Columbia ’s Riverbanks Zoo and Botanical Gardens. This event takes place on the weekend before Valentine’s day.

Exhibition and Tea
Each spring the chapter has an exhibit of arrangements done by all of the members. As a part of this event, a demonstration of techniques and arrangements takes place and this is concluded with a tea. This event takes place at the Columbia Garden Club Council’s building.
