The Greater Pittsburgh Dahlia Society is a local chapter of the National American Dahlia Society. The national is non-profit organization founded for the purpose of stimulating interest in, disseminating information about, and promoting the culture and development of, the dahlia.
The chapter was founded in 1937 and Jack Ripper, yes that was his name, the first president. The first show was in 1938. The picture above is a copy of the first show brochure. We have exhibited at many different venues over the years including Monroeville Mall and South Hills Village. Currently our show is at Trax Farm in Finleyville.
Our members are passionate about growing and showing dahlias. We enjoy passing on our knowledge to the next group of dahlia enthusiasts. Do you think you might be interested in growing or do you have a question on storing dahlia tubers? We are anxious to help.
