The 29th annual Festival of Flowers, is proud to showcase gardens of Japanese influence by Lead Designer Dale Speetjens of Shipshape Urban Farms. All visitors will “Feel the Zen!” as they stroll under traditional Torii gates and glimpse a magnificent Mount Fuji mural created by NEST of Mobile. A tranquil bamboo forest leads the way to six locally landscaped gardens that demonstrate the historical evolution of Japanese gardening. A tea house will float on a peaceful pond enhanced by raised flowers and plants. Visitors will find balance as they gaze upon a central Zen Garden that represents unspoiled nature viewed from many focal points throughout the show. Floral geisha's and warrior masks, created by our area’s most talented designers, add drama and unique cultural elements to this “Zen-sational” showcase!

Produced by the Ascension Providence Hospital Foundation, the 2022 Festival of Flowers will inspire and nurture the gardener in all of us. Recognized for over a decade as a Top 20 Event by the Southeast Tourism Society, the 2022 Festival of Flowers continues the tradition of delighting and educating visitors of all ages. On March 24-27, come celebrate with us and “Feel the Zen!”
