Voted one of the “best places to see spring blooms across the south” by Southern Living, The Dallas Arboretum's Dallas Blooms is a 6-week floral festival featuring 100 varieties of 500,000 stunning spring blooms, and this year they present… “Birds in Paradise”! And while today might a little gloomy, the flowers are stunning and will only be getting more beautiful!

Updated March 2022



Dallas Blooms is the largest annual floral festival in the Southwest! This stunning display of vibrant floral color runs for 6 weeks at the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden, bringing in thousands of viewers each year for epic views and countless photo moments. The celebration also includes kids activities for family outings, live entertainment, cooking classes, wine + beer pairings & more. 


Every year the festival + floral displays are based on a theme, and this year’s festival theme is “Birds of Paradise.” You won’t be able to miss the 4 eye-catching peacock topiaries that truly bring this theme to life. Throughout the gardens you will see 100 varieties of spring bulbs, 500,000 tulips, and hundreds of Japanese cherry trees. If you’re looking to join in on the fun, you can take part in this year’s bird talks, bird flight shows & more themed programming! 

For the adults, we suggest the Food and Wine Festival on the weekend of March 24-26!


Dallas Arboretum does require tickets for entry that can be purchased on their website at $20 for Adults, $16 for seniors that are 65+, $12 for children 2-12 or free to Dallas Arboretum members! The festival will run from now until April 10, so find a day and make plans to experience the biggest floral festival in the state!
