Do you have plans for the weekend? Why not join us at BloomFest, Bernheim’s annual celebration of spring! The costume parade, naturalist-led discovery stations, local artisans, and food vendors are just some of the many activities available for everyone to enjoy.
New this year, we will be offering a Nature Play Area, where kids and families are invited to engage in self-directed play using materials we will provide. No rules here – just fun and exploration.
The day also coincides with our annual Spring Plant Sale, featuring Bernheim Select™ plants, a distinctive variety of plants propagated from Bernheim’s own collections, along with a varied selection of other unique trees, shrubs, grasses and perennial herbaceous plants. All plants are suitable for north central Kentucky growing. Bernheim horticulturalists will be on hand to answer questions and provide advice too. See a full list of plants here.
We also are in need of volunteers for the day’s events. Students can earn service hours, and all can celebrate spring while helping Bernheim connect people with nature. Click HERE to sign up.
BloomFest and the Spring Plant Sale are free, but the regular $5 environmental impact fee per car applies at the front gate for non-members. All BloomFest festivities run from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. and take place around the Visitor Center.
We will see you Saturday!
