New this year are fairy garden workshops, during which guests can learn the art of gardening and receive a fairy garden starter kit. Tickets are required in advance. Planting demonstrations and make-and-take activities for kids are also available.
Other festivities include meeting a Southern belle, with Southern belle makeover options for children. Enjoy live harp music by Ellen Shiraef, and take a guided historical walking tour through the gardens at 11 a.m. or 3 p.m. Some of the flowers currently blooming along the Enchanted Trail are rhododendrons, native azaleas, mountain laurel and rose campion. Rock City is home to over 400 species of plants and flowers.
As Rock City continues its community partnerships with each special event, the Chattanooga Area Food Bank is a featured partner during Southern Blooms.
