Don't miss Inter-City 2021, August 6-8 in Los Angeles: the biggest cactus and succulent show and sale in the country


After being canceled last year because of COVID-19, the 2021 Inter-City Cactus and Succulent Show and Sale is a go. One of the largest events of its kind in the country, the Inter-City Show combines a juried exhibition of succulents entered by growers of all levels with a 3-day sale of plants and pottery.


The show is a unique opportunity to see impeccably grown cacti and other succulents from private collections. Many are innovatively staged, often in perfectly matched containers. 

Just as exciting is the sale happening Friday through Sunday. Almost two dozen vendors will be selling a huge variety of plants as well as pottery and accessories. A few of the plant vendors are nurseries, but most are specialty growers without a retail outlet. Cactus and succulent shows are pretty much the only way to buy their plants.


Here is a list of all the vendors:

Sale: Friday, August 6 to Sunday, August 8, 11 a.m to 5 p.m.
Show: Saturday, August 7 to Sunday, August 8, 11 a.m to 5 p.m.

Advance tickets are required for entrance to the Los Angeles County Arboretum (reserve here). Arboretum members are free and do not need a ticket reservation.

I'll be there on Friday and Saturday. Maybe I'll see some of you there!


  1. Make sure to take lots of photos. There are always so many unusual and interesting plants displayed in perfect form.
