About the Kona Orchid Society

The Kona Orchid Society (KOS) is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to educating our members and the public about the collection, culture, and appreciation of orchids.  Since 1985, we have promoted fellowship among orchid enthusiasts. Our members include both individual hobbyists and commercial growers, all brought together by our common interest .

The July 11 meeting will be back at the Bridge Building at the former Hualalai Academy at the end of Kealakaa St in Kailua Kona. We are hoping this will be permanent but must wait for the new owners--Makua Lani Christian Academy--to get their plans for the building  finalized.   Watch the newspaper and this website for info.


KOS usually meets at 6:00PM on the first Friday of the month.  Our membership meetings are open to the public and we welcome anyone interested in joining us.  See our schedule of upcoming events for further information.  If you have an interest in becoming a member, see our membership page.

Each year on Mother’s Day weekend (Friday and Saturday), we hold our Annual Orchid Show and Sale in the pavilion at the Old Kona Airport in Kailua-Kona. If you are in the Kailua-Kona area, you won’t want to miss it.

Admission is FREE to everyone.
