From Newport 60+ Center
SWAN ISLAND DAHLIA FESTIVAL
You are invited to attend the 2017 Annual Dahlia Festival, a must-see for the dahlia lover, or if you just love flowers. View over 400 floral arrangements, over 1500 cut dahlia blooms on display, floral arranging and tuber dividing demonstrations, food booths, face painting and live music.
Swan Island Dahlias, in business for over 89 years, is the largest and leading dahlia grower in the United States. They hybridize their own new varieties, planting over 10,000 seedlings each year. From those original seedlings it takes about 4 to 5 years to introduce a new seedling for sale. Each season they introduce anywhere from 5 to 15 new varieties which are featured in their catalog and at the farm. They grow over 360 varieties on 40 acres that are open to the public during blooming season, and host the largest six day- dahlia festival in the United States.
Cost for this trip is $20.00. The 60+ Adventure Van will be leaving Newport at 8:00 am and will be returning around 6:00 pm on Saturday, September 2, 2017. Space is limited.
