New Spring FlowerFest Event at Callaway Resort & Gardens Spring Begins at Callaway
A new celebration is blooming at Callaway Resort and Gardens! For the first time, Callaway is pleased to announce the arrival of the newest signature event: Spring FlowerFest. This commencement of spring will take place when the azaleas bloom in March and the new event will last all the way through May. Relish in the splendor of more than 30 beautiful topiaries, a larger-than-life flower mosaic, fields of whimsical wildflowers, and 20,000 native azaleas. Callaway’s Azalea Bowl is considered one of the world’s largest displays of native and cultivated blooms, so be sure to witness as they burst in a kaleidoscope of vibrant colors.
“Spring memories are in bloom here at Callaway. We are excited to bring the public a new event that incorporates all the garden attractions and outdoor experiences we know and love,” said Sonny Horton, Vice President and General Manager of Callaway Resort and Gardens. “We strive to create an opportunity for everyone to appreciate the season together in a fun and socially distanced environment.”
With unlimited space to wander, explore, and indulge in Spring’s finest, there are countless possibilities to create lifelong memories. Azalea blooms will kick off the show towards the end of March. A new 8,000 square foot flower mosaic and garden-themed topiaries placed around the Butterfly Conservatory will take the spotlight in April. One of the most notable features will be a peacock topiary with a tail that is 20 feet long. Fresh fields of wildflowers will bring the event to a close in May.
