Festivals at Powell Gardens
Booms & Blooms: July 3, 2013
Thanks to everyone who attended! We enjoyed dazzling daylilies, patriotic music, good eats and sizzling fireworks over a dark country sky, making this one of Powell Gardens' most treasured festivals. Stay tuned for information about the 2014 festivities!
Festival of Butterflies: August 2-4 & 9-11, 2013
Each August Powell Gardens transforms the 2,500-square-foot conservatory into a temporary butterfly house, filled to the brim with gorgeous blooms and hundreds of tropical butterflies.
And that's just the beginning! Festival days are packed with hands-on fun. Highlights include a native butterfly breezeway by Master Gardeners, Monarch Watch and the Idalia Society, kids' crafts, a costume parade, a butterfly catch-and-release area and much more. Learn more.
Harvest Celebration & Antique Tractor and Equipment Show, Oct. 4-6, 2013
The first weekend of October brings a return to Powell Gardens' agricultural roots with a festival that celebrates the best of the harvest season. The festival includes an exhibit of antique tractors, engines and other equipment, complete with a parade of power and tractor-driving skills games. In 2013, Powell Gardens is pleased to serve as the state show site for the International Harvestors Collectors' Club Chapter One.
Along with the tractors and related exhibits, visitors will find plenty of other fall fun, including pumpkin painting, a scarecrow exhibit, a pedal tractor pull and outdoor family games.
