Preview Night & Open House

Event FAQ

What's new for this pop-up?

Emerald City Orchids has transformed quite a bit since our last pop-up with Ecuagenera. In terms of our physical business, we've begun work on a brand new showroom up front where Brown's Flowers was previously located, with a brand new dedicated space for all of our new aroids and new employee facilities that we will be debuting on preview night and throughout the weekend open house.

We're thrilled to be adding Andy's Orchids to our line-up as well. He'll be bringing many mounted species with him, and it's exciting that we have this opportunity to share these specimens with our customers here in the PNW!

We're also bringing in lots of talent from around the area, from food vendors to brewers and music performances. One of our goals has been to collaborate more with local businesses, and that is something we will hopefully get to implement more of with this next pop-up as well.

Where/when is the open house?

Emerald City Orchids - 4734 South Tacoma Way, Tacoma WA 98409.

Friday Preview Night Party: 5-10 PM, May 26

Sat-Monday Open House: 9-5pm, May 27-29

The preview night is a ticketed event (more info below in FAQ), and the rest of the open-house days are free and open to the public.

How do I pre-order for the pop-up?

Pre-Ordering from Ecuagenera is now available for pick up at our pop-up. If there's a plant you really want, we recommend pre-ordering it to eliminate the risk of us selling out of them or not having any. Shipping to the pop-up is only $2 per plant, in comparison to paying a full delivery fee for individual order delivery.

To pre-order from the Ecuagenera website, please select "Pickup at Tacoma Pop-Up" during checkout. We will sort and check each order individually upon arrival so that you can pick it up on any day of our open house.

How can I get entry into the preview night party?

We will be selling a limited number of tickets for entry to the preview party. Each person attending must have their own purchased ticket, one ticket per person. Purchase Tickets Here

For those who haven't attended our preview night before, it is a party that we host inside our greenhouse filled with live jazz, catered food and drinks, and exclusive early access to the entire pop-up inventory.

It's a must-attend event for anyone who wants first dibs on the selection, and it is also the kick-off of our 20% off open house sale for our greenhouse inventory!

Does pre-ordering still get me preview night entry?

No, we no longer count pre-orders as entry for the party. Every guest in attendance must purchase a ticket to enter.

Those who come Friday night to pick up their pre-order and did not purchase a ticket are allowed to pick-up their order and shop the ECO inventory, but will not be able to shop from any of our vendors during that evening.

We made the decision to make the party a ticketed event instead of requiring a pre-order to be more inclusive towards those who are nervous or wish to not pre-order, but would still like to attend the party. It will also allow us to anticipate attendance and plan better for the evening for a more fun and safe event.

Any special deals to know about?

Yes! To express our gratitude to all of our customers, our entire greenhouse inventory will be 20% off for the duration of the event (not including other vendor products). This will be the perfect time to buy that plant you've been dying to have.

We also recommend coming Monday, the last day of the open house, when there may be special last-minute deals.
