The Pacific Orchid Exposition (POE) is rated by the American Orchid Society as the largest orchid show in the United States and offers over 150,000 unique orchids from across the globe. The event is hosted by the San Francisco Orchid Society, a 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to foster the culture and cultivation of orchids and to promote orchid education to its members and to the public.

Because of its diverse microclimate, the Bay Area is widely acknowledged as one of the best orchid growing regions in the world and is home to thousands of exotic species.

2019 marks the 67th year of the POE.
