It’s Spring Flower Festival Time!

This spring, stop and smell the flowers—at a spring flower festival.

From daffodil days to azalea fairs, there are lots of celebrations from which to choose, especially in the southern, eastern and midwestern portions of the U.S.A.

Here are just a few:

Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival, March 7-May 20 Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival in Orlando’s famed Epcot Theme Park features presentations by some of the nation’s top landscape designers, theme weekends and tours of Disney’s unique botanical gardens, which contain 100 fabulous topiaries, 75 shaped like Disney characters.

Noteworthy Nearby Lake:Lake Eola in Downtown Orlando Known for its fountain and swan boats, Lake Eola is truly a symbol of Orlando, the "City Beautiful."



Tulip Time Festival, April 7-April 23 Want to see tulips ... lots and lots of tulips? Then head to Topeka, Kansas in April. You’ll see over 200,000 of them (as well as daffodils) in bloom and beautiful throughout the city’s gardens, parks and historical sites.

Local Fishing Lake: Topeka Central Park Lake in the city of Topeka A fine community fishing hole, Topeka Central Park Lake offers anglers awesome opportunities to reel in channel catfish, crappie, largemouth bass and bluegill.

Festival of Flowers, April 7-May 20 Biltmore House, George Vanderbilt’s 250-room chateau in Asheville, South Carolina, is known for its architecture, its history and its gardens. The Festival of Flowers at Biltmore is a chance to see those gardens in all their glory. In April, the tulips are in full force—thousands of them. In May, peonies and irises steal the show. Activities include live music, Q and A sessions with gardening experts and daily horticultural seminars.

Nearby Fishing Hole: Lake Julian Lake Julian, a 300-acre lake south of Asheville in Arden, South Carolina, is loaded with bass, brim, catfish, crappie and imported Tilapia.

Daffodil Days at Blithewold, April 14-May 6 Stop by Blithewold Mansion in Bristol, Rhode Island during Daffodil Days, and you’ll see an astounding display of (you guessed it!) daffodils—over 50,000 of them—in bloom throughout the gardens and along walking trails that wind through the estate’s charming woodlands.

Of Interest to Water Enthusiasts: Narragansett & Mount Hope Bay There’s water, water everywhere in Bristol. A seaport town, Bristol is located on peninsula flanked by Narragansett Bay to the west and Mount Hope Bay to the east.

Dogwood-Azalea Festival, April 19-April 22 Visit Charleston, Missouri in April and experience the town’s 44th annual Dogwood- Azalea Festival. From April 19-22, six miles of the town will be lined with luminaries to spotlight not only its beautiful spring blossoms, but also Charleston’s delightful historical architecture. Activities include home and garden tours, a parade and an old-fashioned ice cream social.

Notable Nearby Lake: Upper Big Lake Upper Big Lake is a 20-acre recreational lake in the Delaney Lake Conservation Area about three miles outside Charleston.

Orleans Dogwood Festival, April 27-May 5 The Dogwood Festival in Orleans, Indiana (the unofficial dogwood capital of the state) is a fun family event that features bike races, giant yard sales, crafts, amusement park rides and, of course, blooming dogwood trees.

Notable Nearby Lake: Spring Mill Lake Spring Mill Lake is a unique manmade lake fed by water from nearby caves. It’s just five miles north of Orleans in Spring Mill State Park.

The Dogwood Festival, May 11-May 13 Mother’s Day weekend is the perfect time to celebrate women, children and flowers. Greenfield Hill Congregational Church in Fairfield, Connecticut honors all three at its Dogwood Festival. The festival not only celebrates spring blossoms, but also raises money for needy women and children.

Of Interest to Boaters: Long Island Sound Long Island Sound is readily accessible from Fairfield, which has two marinas as well as lots of places from which you can easily launch a boat.

Lilac Festival, May 11-May 20 You’ll see over 500 varieties of lilac in bloom at the Lilac Festival in Rochester, New York. But that’s not all! Festival activities also include plant sales, live musical performances, children’s games, an art show and a parade.

Notable Nearby Lake: Lake Ontario Rochester sits on the southern shore of Lake Ontario, one of North America’s five Great Lakes.

    I have heard of the amazing Vanderbilt chateau. The architecture is stunning. I had no idea they had a festival of flowers. I would love to see pics of that posted on here.

    I am actually planning to go to the Dogwood festival. It is absolutely gorgeous there and it is wonderful too, because there is a good cause associated with it :)

    I am actually hoping to get to the Biltmore House for the flower festival. All of these festivals are great and brings the season even more to life.
