Central States Dahlia Society is a group of dedicated and knowledgeable

gardeners who focus on promoting the culture of dahlias.

"We are basically crazy about dahlias."

Friendly CSDS members welcome attendees to the Annual Dahlia Show at CBG

During the Winter, early Spring and Fall  (January thru November), CSDS members meet regularly at the Elk Grove Village Public Library, 1001 Wellington Avenue, Elk Grove Village, IL. Meetings are usually held on the 2nd Sunday of each month at 1:30 pm.

During a normal Summer growing season, CSDS fills its calendar with a multitude of activities including the CSDS Annual Dahlia Sale in May, garden walks, tours, excursions, an annual picnic, and annual Awards Banquet. The main event of the year, (drum roll please), is the CSDS Annual Dahlia Show and Competition in September.

​Please see the Calendar of Events page for more details.

All gardeners are welcome to Join CSDS for the nominal fee of $10 annual dues for single membership or $12 for family membership. Guests are encouraged to attend one meeting free of charge. For more information please send an email from the Join or Contact Us page.

CSDS is a participating society of the American Dahlia Society and a member of the Midwest Dahlia Conference.
