Presented by the Daffodil & Hosta Society of Western Pennsylvania and The Western NY Hosta Society.
The 2022 Fall Hosta Forum
September 17, 2022
Our 25th Anniversary
This year’s theme is based on the stature of our roster of speakers – think of capes and crowns, shields and BAM, POW, KABOOM
** Note: Registration due no later than 9/1/22
Daffodil and Hosta Society of Western PA and Western New York Hosta Society are happy to present the twenty fifth Annual Fall Hosta Forum. All of the Forum activities take place at the Frank G. Pogue Student Center at Edinboro University, 219 Meadville St, Edinboro, PA 16444. This site has exceeded our expectations and despite the small inconvenience of having to move between hotel and venue, for those who stay, we are thrilled with the arrangements.
Everything takes place in one enormous room – talks, vending and auctions. Some people have complained about the temperature – which is not within our control SO, we suggest that you bring jackets and sweaters that you can pile on if it’s cooler than you would like.
We have worked out a deal with the Edinboro COMFORT SUITES, 1007 Market Place Drive, Edinboro, PA 16412, (814-969-7000 select #2) to hold a block of rooms for us @ $114/night plus taxes. We will host a Hospitality Room there on Friday night for those who have registered. We suggest you book ASAP if you plan on staying!
However, since so many people do come in Friday night and stay, we have added a Friday night element along with a light meal and a short talk on propagation. THIS WILL ALSO OCCUR AT THE UNIVERSITY. We will then host a Hospitality Room at the Comfort Suites in Edinboro.
And don’t forget the “wheelers and dealers”! We will have the usual high-quality blend of vendors with our usual array of exciting plant and garden items. This year we expect the usual suspects – Eagle Bay Hostas, Joan’s Hostas, DJ’s Greenhouse plus anyone else we can scoop up.
For those who attend the Friday night vendor preview, you will be receiving a $5 voucher – redeemable at our vendors, just for being you. Make a weekend of it and get your reservations in today – space is limited! NOTE: If you plan on Friday night, make your reservations NOW!

The brochure and registration form should be returned before 8/1/22 (and certainly no later than September 1st).
The awesome fee for the day is $65 pp – but when you donate an auction item worth $20 or more (or items… remember, this benefits the Societies and helps to keep prices down), then the registration fee is only $55! This fabulous deal includes 4 talks, lunch, access to lots of excellent vendors, and a chance to score at the auction. NOTICE THAT WE PUSHED BACK THE STARTING TIME A TAD TO ALLOW FOLKS TO TRAVEL IN THAT MORNING IF THEY SO DESIRE.
Make a weekend of it and get your reservations in today – space is limited! NOTE: If you plan on Friday night, make your reservations NOW! One year a high school football team beat us to the rooms and they sold out early.
