Club meetings are the first Wednesday of every month and are held at the Garfield Park Conservatory on the near south side of Indianapolis. Meetings begin at 7:00 p.m. Annual dues are $25. For more information, complete and submit the "contact us" form. 

  Please join us for the IBC's 50th Anniversary Gala!

The Indianapolis Bonsai Club will be celebrating our 50th anniversary at the Holliday Park Nature Center on Saturday, July 7th.  The Park is located at 64th and Spring Mill Road in Indianapolis. We'll kick things off with a bonsai show which is open to the public in the nature center auditorium from 10am - 4pm.  Club members are encouraged to bring a tree for the show.  Set up for the show begins at 9am. 

Club members and guests are also invited to attend a catered barbecue dinner in the Holliday Park Nature Center's classroom.  The classroom opens so we can meet and mingle at 11am.  Dinner is at noon.  The cost is $20 for adults and $15 for children 12 and under.  The dinner will conclude at 2pm.  You can spend a couple of hours visiting or enjoying the park's amenities, then you can pick your bonsai tree up from the show at 4pm.

We hope to see you there!

The IBC's next meeting is Wednesday, July 11 from 7pm-9pm

There will be a short program on juniper bonsai followed by a presentation on finishing a bonsai display.
