2012 Biltmore Festival of Flowers Starts April 7

As we celebrate the tulips and daffodils coming up at here at the Inn on Mill Creek, and the arrival of our rose bushes for the Well Garden {ordered by Witherspoon, a North Carolina rose grower and professional rose care service}, we’re also getting excited about the annual Festival of Flowers at Biltmore.

The Festival of Flowers (April 7-May 20) is a Biltmore-style celebration of springtime in the mountains of Western North Carolina. And when we say “Biltmore-style”, we mean thousands of tulips gracing the Walled Garden during the first weeks of April, acres of azalea blooms near the end of April/beginning of May, and irises, peonies, roses and more carrying us through May into summer.

During the Festival of Flowers, Biltmore offers special Festival of Flowers wine at the Winery at Antler Hill Village on the estate (as well as complimentary wine tastings of their many wines), live music every day at Biltmore House and the Conservatory as well as music at 4:00pm every Friday, Saturday and Sunday at Antler Hill Village, complimentary gardening seminars, and, did we mention? Flowers. Everywhere.

Enjoy a few photos we took during past springs at Biltmore (including the one at the top of this post from 2010). And don’t forget, we have tickets available for our Inn on Mill Creek guests at just $49/person with no transaction fees {a great savings off the single day admission price of $59 Sunday-Friday, and $64 on Saturday}. Our tickets can be used any day of the week and are good for the following day for free.
