Texas Dogwood Trails Celebration

Texas Dogwood Trails Celebration | March 20th - April 5th, 2020

DOGWOOD TRAILS AND FAIRY GARDEN TRAIL STILL OPEN.

UNFORTUNATELY, DUE TO THE COVID-19 VIRUS, MANY OF THE EVENTS THAT WERE SCHEDULED FOR THE DOGWOOD FESTIVAL HAVE BEEN POSTPONED AND WILL BE RESCHEDULED AT A LATER DATE.
Activities that would result in a large number of people gathering in one area will be postponed for now. We encourage you to still visit the dogwood blooms, fairy garden trails and have picnics in Davey Dogwood Park. Please call ahead to be sure the event you are planning on is still scheduled even if it is listed on our calendar. We are updating our schedule of events daily.

As of March 17, 2020 the blooms are right on schedule for the 82nd Annual Dogwood Trails Celebration beginning March 20th. The opening weekend of the celebration will be the best chance to see the dogwood trees in bloom. Due to the mild winter, many of the trees are leafing at the same time that they are blooming, so it is harder to spot the blossoms. It is still a beautiful drive in Davey Dogwood Park and throughout the historict district neighborhoods.
