Spring is one of the best times to visit Cheekwood and take a front-row seat for the new season’s arrival. As the days warm in mid-March, waves of color begin to emerge across our grounds and gardens, starting with hyacinths, daffodils, and magnolias that soon give way to iris, dogwoods, and viburnums. This year’s spring blooms will deliver a massive dose of one of spring’s classics: the bright, crisp lines of over 100,000 tulips in our gardens. Celebrate spring at Cheekwood for a bright view sure to lift any winter fog!
There will be so much to see and do during Cheekwood in Bloom, and you won’t want to miss the fun. Mark your calendar and plan to visit us this spring!
