This year, the six-week festival provided by IBERIABANK/First Horizon is themed America the Beautiful:
“The spring festival showcases an explosion of color from 100 varieties of spring bulbs and more than 500,000 spring blooming blossoms, thousands of azaleas and hundreds of Japanese cherry trees,” the arboretum writes on its website. “Each week, Dallas Blooms focuses on one of the six regions in the United States with food, music, flowers, and special events.”
Dallas Blooms is presently celebrating the region of New England, with events that include daily complimentary tastings, tours of the DeGolyer House, a daily harvest, and on Friday, a Horticulture Demonstration of native Texas plants.
From Saturday, February 27 to March 5, the festival will dive into the Southwest. Highlights include a Blooms, Boots, and BBQ Sunday which features a host of barbecue vendors, concerts, and a boot contest as well as a celebration of Texas Independence Day, March 2, with free Texas flags provided to the first 100 visitors.
Other regions of focus include the West (March 6 – 12), Midwest (March 13 – 19), Mid-Atlantic (March 20 – 26), and the South (March 27 – April 4).
The festival has also scheduled a variety of special events for Easter weekend. From face paintings to petting zoos, brunches, family concerts, and more, there is sure to be fun for the whole family!
For its final week, Dallas Blooms will be celebrating all of America. From April 12 – 18, the festival will include cooking classes, blind taste tests, and concerts from The MoTowners, Rushmore Band, and end with a performance from The Quibble Brothers.
