All-New Flower & Food Festival | May 8 - June 14


Spring comes to life at our all-new festival featuring brilliant splashes of color with vibrant displays of flowers, plants, larger-than-life mosaicultures and food reminiscent of the season. In celebration of our 35th anniversary season, the all-new Flower & Food Festival is blooming with fun and discovery around every corner.




“There is no prettier place on earth than in the woods, hills, valleys where we lived. We waded in flowers everywhere we went. Spring flowers of all kinds; red, blue, white, yellow, pink and lavender grew as if God himself had walked along and put them where He knew we’d be.”

— Dolly Parton Family
