Dallas Blooms, the largest floral festival in the Southwest, features more than 100 varieties of spring bulbs and over 500,000 blooms bursting with color. The theme for 2019 is “Life’s A Picnic,” and the festival will feature a larger-than-life picnic scene topiary comprised of a 40’x40’ picnic blanket, vase of flowers, picnic basket with pie, and a giant picnic ant.
Each week of the festival will showcase one of the best picnic scenes throughout film. The festival begins with highlighting the 1955 film, Picnic, and continues each week with films such as To Catch a Thief, Out of Africa, and ends with the animated film Up. Food specials that coincide with each week’s “picnic” film will be offered at restaurant locations throughout the garden.
Other highlights include films followed by a presentation by noted author and journalist Skip Hollandsworth, who penned The Preston Hollow Cat Burglars. Guests can enjoy recommended picnic wines with Checkered Past Winery on Wine Down Wednesdays or stop by the Martin Rutchik Concert Stage and Lawn to listen to the sounds of the best of the best party bands every weekend during Dallas Blooms.
The mission of the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden is to build and maintain a public venue that promotes the art, enjoyment and knowledge of horticulture, while providing opportunities for education and research. We hope that you join us on February 24 at 9 a.m. for a beautiful morning!
