Dallas Blooms - Presented by IBERIABANK

“Life’s A Picnic” With more than 100 varieties of spring bulbs and over 500,000 blooms bursting with color, the Dallas Arboretum announces “Life’s A Picnic” as this year’s Dallas Blooms theme. Running from February 23 to April 7, 2019, the spring festival features an extraordinary, larger-than-life, picnic scene topiary comprised of a stunning 40’x40’ picnic blanket, vase of flowers, picnic basket with pie and a giant picnic ant.

With the greatest views of the downtown Dallas skyline and White Rock Lake, the Dallas Arboretum is hailed as one of the best picnic spots in the Metroplex, so why not celebrate this theme during Dallas Blooms, the largest floral festival in the Southwest? 


Each week showcases one of the best picnic scenes throughout film. The festival begins with highlighting the 1955 film, Picnic, and continues each week with films such as, To Catch a Thief, Out of Africa, and ends with the animated film Up. Food specials that coincide with each week’s “picnic” film will be offered at restaurant locations throughout the garden. Other highlights include films followed by a presentation by noted author and journalist Skip Hollandsworth, who penned “The Preston Hollow Cat Burglars.” Enjoy recommended picnic wines with Checkered Past Winery on Wine Down Wednesdays, or stop by the Martin Rutchik Concert Stage and Lawn—the perfect place to picnic—to listen to the sounds of the best of the best party bands every weekend during Dallas Blooms.
