Dogwood Days 2020: A Week-long Celebration

Dogwood Days 2020: A Week-long Celebration

Plan to visit us during our signature event: Dogwood Days - the annual week-long celebration of Polly Wakefield’s iconic collection of kousa dogwood trees this June! It's going to be spectacular!

Each June, the Mary M. B. Wakefield Charitable Trust welcomes visitors to celebrate the annual blooming of hundreds of Polly Wakefield's kousa dogwood trees. We’re excited to announce that this year’s Dogwood Days will kick-off with our 8th annual Dogwood Days Garden Party on Saturday, June 6th (rsvp required), followed by a week of special events. In the past, this has included open hours, guided tours, a tree sale, our Wine, Cheese and Trees Trivia Tour, Dog and Dogwoods Day and the Dogwood Beer Garden. Stay tuned for the complete schedule but save the dates: Sunday, June 7th until Sunday, June 14th - and make a plan to visit and join in some of the fun events.

During Dogwood Days, the grounds will be open daily from 10 am until 4 pm for self-guided walks around the formal gardens where hundreds of breathtaking kousa dogwoods will be at their peak bloom. A donation of $5 for admission is suggested. In conjunction with our Dogwood Days Celebration, we will hold our annual plant sale. This is your opportunity to add some special woody plants and perennials to your own yard, including some of the signature kousa dogwoods, metasequoias, tulip trees, and mayapples.
