Hats in Bloom

It appears that “Fall is the New Spring.”

Due to concern for the health and safety of the community during the coronavirus pandemic, we have determined that Hats in Bloom cannot be held on June 26, as was hoped.

The rescheduled date for the Hats in Bloom Luncheon is Friday, October 23, 2020, at the Knoxville Botanical Garden.

10:30 am Top Hat Reception
11:30 am Champagne Reception
12:00 pm Luncheon

Tickets are confirmed for all those with paid reservations for this event.  Open ticket sales for the remaining seats at this popular event will begin in September.

If you have questions, please contact Terry Holley at the Knoxville Botanical Garden (terry@knoxgarden.org).

We hope to see you on October 23 as we “Spring into Fall” with Hats in Bloom. We can wear our pretty spring and summer pastels, or show our Vol colors. As always, a hat is not required, but it’s a great opportunity to wear one. Patricia Frankum will likely have winter hats in addition to her new collection of spring hats for us to try on and purchase. All proceeds from this event benefit the Knoxville Botanical Garden & Arboretum.

Thanks to our Sponsors!
