Dallas Blooms at the Dallas Arboretum from March 3rd through April 8th
This year marks the 28th anniversary of the Dallas Arboretum’s nationally acclaimed floral festival Dallas Blooms, presented by Capital One Bank. The festival begins March 3 and continues through April 8.
Dallas Blooms features 500,000 spring-blooming bulbs including tulips, daffodils, Dutch Iris and hyacinths, in addition to 100,000 pansies, violas, poppies and thousands of other spring-blooming annuals and perennials. During the festival, over 100 Cherry Blossom trees bloom for a ten day period. Then the finale of this spring celebration is the mass flowering of the garden’s collection of 6,000 azaleas that bloom through the end of April.
As part of Dallas Blooms – ‘It’s a Work of Art’, the Dallas Arboretum also launches its Small Houses of Great Artists exhibit.
During the Dallas Blooms celebration, ArtScape, a fine art show and sale, will take place in the garden over three days – Friday, March 16 through Sunday, March 18, featuring nearly 100 artists from around the country. The featured artists work in various mediums like painting, watercolor, pastel, drawing, photography, fiber, jewelry, glass, wood, sculpture and 2-D and 3-D mixed media.
Dallas Blooms events and activities include face painting, petting zoo, arts & crafts, Eddie Coker concert, photos with a live bunny during Easter weekend, and more. Visit the Dallas Arboretum website for more information.
