Spring Wildflower Pilgrimage in the Great Smoky Mountains

Its that time of year again when the Great Smoky Mountain National Park will come alive with a burst of vibrant color on the ground floor.  Over 1500 different kinds of flowering plants will take bloom and give the visitors a spectacular show of color and variety.  In fact, the park is sometimes referred to as the “Wildflower National Park.” The Spring Wildflower Pilgrimage is an annual five-day event in Great Smoky Mountains National Park consisting of a variety of wildflower, fauna, and natural history walks, motorcades, photographic tours, art classes, and indoor seminars.  The Spring Wildflower Pilgrimage in the Smokies this year is April 15-19, 2014!

On-site registration will begin Tuesday, April 15, 2014 at 5:00 PM in the Mills Conference Center, Gatlinburg TN. View the on-site registration schedule or register now online . To keep up with the latest updates from the 63rd Spring Wildflower Pilgrimage, like us on Facebook.

Each spring, the park hosts the Spring Wildflower Pilgrimage, a week-long festival of programs and guided walks and hikes that explore the wondrous diversity of life in the park.
