More than 100,000 tulips will herald the start of Biltmore's 25th Annual Festival of Flowers on April 3. Through May 16, the stunning floral displays across the estate celebrate the majesty of Frederick Law Olmsted's legacy. Floral décor will focus on iris, fleur de lis and silver, all symbolic of the 25th anniversary. Expect live music daily in the Winter Garden in Biltmore House and the Conservatory, and daily seminars at A Gardener's Place. Biltmore's restaurants will feature special silver anniversary menu items, drinks and desserts, with the Winery offering a commemorative Festival of Flowers wine, wine programs and children's activities on Saturdays and Sundays.
