Arboretum hosts dahlia show, craft day

The North Carolina Arboretum will host two events to end the summer and kick off fall — the 26th annual Carolinas Dahlia Society Show will take place Sept. 8 and 9, and Carolina Craft Day will be held on Sept. 22.

The Dahlia Show is from 1 until 5 p.m. on Sept. 8 and 9 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. on Sept. 9. Hundreds of dahlias in every shape, size and color will be on display. Exhibitors from four states, including commercial and amateur growers from North Carolina, Tennessee, Georgia and Alabama will participate. This year’s theme, Power of Pink, was chosen to bring increased awareness to the fight against cancer. 

The shows are free for Arboretum Society members or with the standard parking fee ($8 per personal motor vehicle). 828.665.2492 or visit www.ncarboretum.org.

We don’t plan to change that model. Support from our readers will help us maintain and strengthen the editorial independence that is crucial to our mission to help make Western North Carolina a better place to call home.
