Cheekwood in Bloom

There’s no place more beautiful than Cheekwood in the spring as more than 150,000 blooming bulbs 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 five weekends of family activities, entertainment and plenty of natural inspiration, we can’t think of a better way to celebrate the change of seasons.

  • 150,000 Blooming Bulbs
  • Weekend Activities, including crafts, live music, tours and more.
  • Cheekwood Beer Garden open Saturdays and Sundays, 11 am – 4 pm
