Since 1961, Dogwood Arts has celebrated the natural and cultural beauty of East Tennessee by producing a dynamic Festival featuring blooming gardens and trails, visual arts, music, crafts, theatre, culinary arts, dance, film, and literary arts. http://www.dogwoodarts.com
The largest fundraiser for the Festival is the annual House and Garden Show. The event attracts homeowners and gardening enthusiasts for three days of shopping, entertainment, culinary delight, and inspiration in February. From fencing to flooring and lighting to landscaping, it’s the place for consumers to discover the latest trends in indoor and outdoor design. http://www.dogwoodhouseandgarden.com
The Dogwood Arts Festival, an annual month-long event taking place every April, includes more than a dozen events, including: five art exhibitions, Rhythm N' Blooms music festival, Chalk Walk, Market Square Art Fair, studio tours, Bikes & Blooms, Walking Trails, and more! The Festival's signature Dogwood Trails cover more than 60 miles in seven residential neighborhoods with five additional garden byways. Winding throughout the city, you will find breathtaking, well-marked, open gardens and camera sites to enjoy by foot, bike, or car. http://www.dogwoodarts.com
The Knoxville Film Festival, the latest addition to Dogwood Arts' endevours, is a four-day event taking place in September at Regal Downtown West Cinema 8. The event consists of film screenings, a Student Film Competition, a 7-day Shootout, workshops, and special appearances! http://www.knoxvillefilmfestival.com
Dogwood Arts also manages and executes Bazillion Blooms, an annual community-wide dogwood tree-planting program taking place each December. More than 6,550 dogwood trees have been planted in the last five years - and we're still going! http://www.bazillionblooms.com
