Open 9 am to 5 pm every day from March 12 to April 10

There’s no place more beautiful than Cheekwood in the spring as tulips, daffodils, and spring blooming bulbs spill from our gardens, creating a colorful, showstopping experience you won’t forget. Magnolias, redbuds, and dogwoods are also in on the act as warmer weather and longer days arrive. Celebrate the changing season with family activities, adult workshops and programs, special performances, Sunday Jazz, and a weekend Beer Garden, plus plenty of natural inspiration.

Cheekwood Estate & Gardens is a 55-acre botanical garden and art museum located on the historic Cheek estate just outside of Nashville. Since being converted into a museum of art and botanical garden in 1960, Cheekwood has presented world-class art exhibitions, spectacular gardens, and a historic estate unlike anything else. As one of the city’s top attractions, Cheekwood has family activities, programs, and festivals to celebrate all four seasons.

Cheekwood in Bloom 

The 10th Anniversary Celebration opens March 12 with 250,000 blooms for the largest and most colorful celebration of spring to date. Cheekwood in Bloom, which has become a beloved tradition to welcome warmer weather, longer days, and the rich colors of spring perennials, will also feature live concerts, workshops, and programming for all ages and outdoor wellness classes to encourage visitors to take advantage of Cheekwood’s 55 acres of breathing room to rejuvenate the mind, body, and spirit.  

Spanning the Atlantic: The Arts and Crafts Movement

The Arts & Crafts movement was an international trend in the decorative arts that first developed in the British Isles during the 19th century before its influence made its way across the Atlantic to America. The movement stood for traditional craftsmanship, often incorporating medieval, romantic, or folk styles of decoration. Leading examples of works by Charles F. A. Voysey, William Morris, and Charles Rennie Mackintosh, to name a few, will be included in this two-part exhibition with the American portion on display in the spring of 2023.

Cheekwood in Bloom is presented by HCA. Cheekwood will be open seven days a week from 9 am to 5 pm throughout the festival. Advanced reservations are required for all happenings, including workshops, classes, and general admission.
