A Festival Celebrating Waterfalls, Woods, Wildflowers & Wonders Trails & Trilliums - now a starred date on the spring calendars of hikers, gardeners, wildflower enthusiasts, and art lovers- is truly a
blooming success. April is peak wildflower season on the Cumberland Plateau, and each year the naturalists attend in "phlox." The
Monteagle Assembly grounds with its charming cottages, creeks and gardens is an ideal spot for the festival. With guided hikes on over
15 of the South Cumberland's most scenic trails, a topnotch native plant sale, workshops on garden design and native plants, music,
ART for the PARK, and children's events … Trails & Trilliums has something for everyone who loves the out of doors.
2014 Highlights include:
ART for the PARK- Arts, Crafts & Woodland Garden Gallery In its third year, ART for the PARK continues to grow in size and selection. The 3-day exhibition and sale celebrates fine art and regional
crafts executed at the highest level. The Assembly provides a beautiful indoor venue and a tented outdoor exhibition space. The
Woodland Garden Gallery offers a superb selection of native plants, containers, and artful focal elements. An ART for the PARK preview
party is held on the evening of Friday, April 11.
Teddy Roosevelt! A performance by the premier Teddy Roosevelt reprisor in America, Joe Wiegand, is scheduled for Saturday night, April 12, during Wine
& Wildflowers. His performance will focus on the legacy of our national and state park system, initiated by the Rough Rider president.
Wiegand performed as Teddy Roosevelt at the White House during TR's sesquicentennial and has appeared in all 50 states.
Family Fun A focus on families includes Saturday activities that will spark kids' interest in wildlife, woods and wonder. The children's schedule
includes an appearance by Davy Crockett, hayrides, a ropes course, wildlife programs and more. All children's events are free.
