The Dallas Arboretum celebrates spring with one of the Southwest’s biggest annual floral festivals, Dallas Blooms: A Picture’s Worth a Thousand Words, from February 24th to April 8th. Named the “Most Beautiful Springtime Destination in the US” by Travel & Leisure, Dallas Blooms features 500,000 spring blooming flowers from more than 120 varieties. Of that total, 350,000 are tulips, and the others are hyacinth and daffodils. Amegy Bank is the festival’s presenting sponsor.

Sabina Carr, the new Dallas Arboretum president and CEO said, “The Dallas Arboretum ushers in spring with Dallas Blooms. The garden is the most glorious place in Dallas to see hundreds of thousands of tulips and spring flowers along with cherry blossoms and azaleas. Bring your family and friends to stroll the garden, enjoy nature and attend events.”

February 24 and 25 are also the Caroline Rose Hunt Opening Weekend of Dallas Blooms, a gift that her foundation gives in her memory.

Beyond being a visual delight, Dallas Blooms transforms into a playground of joy for families, offering cherished activities like petting zoos, bubble picnics and heartwarming story times. Children are invited to Mommy and Me Mondays and Tiny Tot Tuesdays, tailor-made to spark their imaginations and Family Fun Weekends. For more information, visit
