Blooms Beyond Borders 2023 (Flower Festivals Around the World)

While we still have some time before ushering in May Flowers, you can still get ready to enjoy the floral product of April’s Showers. Beyond a local garden, the world has plenty of flower festivals to showcase Mother Nature’s gift for spring.

Festivals in the United States


Looking to stay in the country? Head to the nation’s capital for the National Cherry Blossom Festival, which takes place over the course of a few weeks starting in March and ending in mid-April. Or explore the midwest for Michigan’s Tulip Festival! Named America’s Best Small Town Festival, come visit Holland once May rolls around.
