The Whole Bloomin’ Thing Festival is coming to Waynesville’s Frog Level district from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, May 7.
Now in its ninth year, the spring festival kicks off the growing season with flowering baskets, vegetable and herb starts, berry bushes and potted ornamental plants to jumpstart your garden.
Local artisans will feature a wide range of nature-inspired gifts and crafts, as well as fresh cheeses, homemade preserves and jellies, barbecue and burgers, veggie wraps, ice cream and desserts.
Live music and entertainment will be provided throughout the day by local musicians and dancers including Chris Minick, Caleb Burress, Lorraine Conard, Bostic Yard, Josh Fields, Ian Moore, The Ross Brothers and Cousins, and local cloggers The Smoky Mountain Stompers.
Parking is available at Haywood Builders, St. John’s Catholic Church, the VFW upper parking lot, the public parking deck on Branner Ave., and all public parking in the area.
