Cheekwood In Bloom

There’s no place more beautiful than Cheekwood in Bloom at springtime, as more than 150,000 blooms spill from our gardens creating a color experience you won’t forget. Snowdrops, crocus, hyacinths, daffodils, magnolias, redbuds, and dogwoods are also in on the act, putting on an unforgettable show as warmer weather and longer days arrive in Nashville. With six weekends of family activities, entertainment and plenty of natural inspiration, we can’t think of a better way to celebrate the change of seasons.

Flower House

Cheekwood brings the beauty of the spring season to life by transforming the Arboretum Lawn into a colorful flower village, featuring a flower cottage made of pretty petunias.

Beer Garden

Enjoy a beer in an actual garden! Gather with friends for food trucks, live music, seasonal beers, and craft cocktails set among Cheekwood’s spring gardens.The Beer Garden is open every Saturday and Sunday of Cheekwood in Bloom from 11 am to 4 pm.
