Popular Spring Flower Festivals in the USAThere’s nothing quite like knowing spring has sprung, is there? Gone are the snowy days, chilly temperatures and ice-covered windshields. Here are the days of harvesting fresh herbs, enjoying coffee on the deck and lounging by the pool.
Is there a better way to welcome the new season than basking in the sun as it welcomes you in the morning? If you like flowers, the answer is yes. Attending one of the nation’s most popular flower festivals is an even better way to celebrate the arrival of spring.
If you’re going to welcome spring by attending a flower festival, there’s a wide variety of them for you to choose from. Here are some of America’s best spring flower festivals that you may want to attend.
Every spring, the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden invites people to visit its 66-acre garden situated on the shore of White Rock Lake in Dallas to see its vast array of flowers during its annual Dallas Blooms event. For more than three decades, this six-week flower festival has wowed visitors with its impressive display of just about every color imaginable.
While tulips, daffodils and hyacinths are mainstays during this festival, the arrangements rotate regularly to feature whatever is in bloom in a given week. The constant rotation of flowers makes visiting the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden multiple times during Dallas Blooms a must for any true flower lover or anyone who simply loves being awash in a literal rainbow of natural colors.
If you enjoy leisurely strolls along paths that are strewn with natural beauty, you shouldn’t miss the Dogwood-Azalea Festival in Charleston, Missouri. This three-day annual event celebrates more than the area’s stunning dogwoods and azaleas. It’s also a celebration of the town’s local retailers who’ve maintained the area’s history, hospitality and traditions throughout the years. For nearly 50 years, the Dogwood-Azalea Festival has given nature-lovers the chance to experience a six-mile trail that highlights the best Mother Nature has to offer. This is a must-attend event for anyone who enjoys the festivity that spring brings with it.
Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival
If you’re trying to think of something you and your kids will enjoy over spring break, why not plan a trip to attend the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival in Orlando, Florida? Every year, Disney uses flower sculptures and manicured trees to bring everyone’s favorite characters to life through nature. From Anna and Elsa to Minnie Mouse and Pluto and much more, the best of Disney is on display during the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival.
This festival isn’t just a great place to enjoy fantastic sights, it’s also a great time for your little ones to learn. Disney horticulturalists are on-site to provide inside information about the festival as well as advice about best gardening practices throughout the event.
This annual event shows off everything there is to love about the famed Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina. You can spend as much time as you like exploring the vast estate’s private gardens and enjoying secret hideaways created specifically to provide visitors with much-needed peace and quiet. If you tour the grounds long enough, you’ll be able to enjoy live music at the bandstand in Antler Hill Village. If you get hungry, getting an ice cream cone from the village’s ice cream parlor is strongly encouraged.
