Hats in Bloom

Reserve Your Table or Ticket Today! 

An annual benefit for the Knoxville Botanical Garden on Friday, April 12, 2019 in the Dogwood Center and surrounding gardens at The Knoxville Botanical Garden & Arboretum

Visit with friends, family and colleagues while sipping champagne mimosas and enjoying a seated lunch at the beautiful Knoxville Botanical Garden.

Hats in Bloom features milliner Patricia Frankum’s designer hats and lunch by Chef Peter Glander of Knox Provisions. A hat is not required, but it’s a great opportunity to wear one!

All proceeds from the event support the Knoxville Botanical Garden & Arboretum, an amazing historic public garden located east of downtown Knoxville.

With a special thanks to our sponsors…
