2017 Blowing Rock Garden Club Mile of Flowers Event

June 23rd, 2017 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Come to Blowing Rock and experience the vibrant gardens, enjoy lunch in one of our local restaurants, shop for items at the garden club’s boutique and area businesses, and wind down with a relaxing cup of afternoon tea and desserts served by garden club members. It’s sure to be an sensational day for both locals and out-of-town visitors!

We will be welcoming guests beginning at 9 a.m. at the gazebo on Main Street, which will also serve as our information center. All gardens and events are within several blocks of the center of town. From 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., tour stunning gardens of the churches and  private Blowing Rock homes selected for this event where garden guides will be available to provide education about select plants and flowers. 

Ingenious hand-crafted items will be available for purchase from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at our garden-themed boutique located in the library’s community room. 

The celebrated afternoon tea, featuring a variety of scrumptious home-baked delicacies and delights, will be offered from 2-4 p.m. in the newly renovated American Legion Building overlooking the beautiful Mayview Lake. 

Please consider car-pooling. This event is a walking tour, although we will have the trolley for those needing a lift. Wear comfortable shoes and clothing and be prepared to have a wonderful day!
