Celebrate the beauty of southern blooms during this premiere garden event - Saturday and Sunday, May 9th & 10th and May 16th & 17th!

For the 12th year, come see Rock City in all of its spring glory as we honor our original gardener, Frieda Utermoehlen Carter during the Southern Blooms Festival and Founder’s Day Celebration. Rock City’s Enchanted Trail comes alive with color as blossoms open all about the gardens. Learn about the legacy and heritage of the gardens through tours, demos and festivities. Kids of all ages can enjoy educational flower craft activities and learn what it takes to make a garden grow! Take home a plant inspired by our founder from Frieda’s Flower Sale. Delicious southern food is also available as well as other featured entertainment. This event has been selected as a 2019 Top 20 Event by Southeast Tourism Society!
