Each year, Dogwood Arts showcases the art, culture, and natural beauty of our region. As the South Knoxville area continues to grow and revitalize in the wake of the re-opening of the Henley Street Bridge, Dogwood Arts & the Trails Advisory Board are of the belief that this sector of Knoxville as a whole deserves recognition and publicity. In addition to the Chapman Highway Dogwood Trail, South Knoxville has the Island Home Garden Byway, Ijams Nature Center, High Ground Park, Candoro Marble, and the 42 miles of biking and walking trails in Knoxville’s Urban Wilderness and so much more.

Wondering what’s happening with the dogwood blooms in our neck of the woods? Stay tuned for the 2015  Bloom Watch!

Experience the Dogwood Trails the lean, green way – take a walk, run, or bike ride and observe nature’s wonders up close.  A founding tradition of Dogwood Arts, the nationally-recognized Dogwood Trails are a must-see!

THE DOGWOOD LUNCHEON, an invitation-only event kicking off the opening of the Dogwood Trails and Open Gardens, will be taking place Wednesday, April 8th at Ijams Nature Center.
