Lily Show
Ontario Regional Lily Society Annual Show

The ORLS (Ontario Regional Lily Society) was formed in 1966. The group exists to encourage the cultivation, knowledge and enjoyment of lilies.

Our Society is made up of members from many areas of Ontario, as well as from other provinces and from the United States. Our meeting location is Royal Botanical Gardens in Burlington, Ontario.

We’ve just completed our Annual General Meeting and have the 2024 slate of officers and directors. Our 2024 President is Eric Duma.  Our Secretary is Lola MacFadyan, and our Treasurer is Declan Whelan.  To receive a listing of the Executive, Board or Committee Chairs or to contact them, our email is

Each July we hold our annual lily show at the Royal Botanical Gardens in Burlington, Ontario. The date is the alternate weekend with the North American Lily Society Show so members can participate in both.  This is a great time for the public to come out and see what lily growers have been up to throughout the year.

Our bulb auction and sale is usually held the first Sunday in October.  Typically the bulb auction is online and the sale is in person at the Royal Botanical Gardens.  Our November member meeting is usually the second Sunday in November and is generally now held via Zoom.
