2013 Dahlia Show | Golden Gate Park

2013 Dahlia Show: Saturday | Golden Gate ParkThe Dahlia Society of San Francisco will hold the annual Dahlia Show at the Hall of Flowers in Golden Gate Park from 10 am to 5 pm on Saturday, August 17, 2013, and from 10 am to 4 pm on Sunday, August 18, 2013.

The Dahlia is the official flower of San Francisco.

In the resolution of 1926, then-Mayor Rolph wrote, “The Dahlia partakes essentially of the character of our beloved city, in birth, breeding and habit, for it was originally Mexican, carried thence to Spain, to France and England in turn, being changed in the process from a simple daisy-like wild flower to a cosmopolitan beautyIn its versatility, its beauty, its infinite variety of color and form, it is the very symbol of San Francisco life and of the spirit of her people.”
