Dogwood Trail Celebration

Dogwood Trail

 

Beautiful by day and glorious by night, the lighted trail covers approximately 10 miles highlighting dogwoods and flowering garden areas. While the trees are in bloom (mid-April, depending on the blooming of the Dogwoods), Dogwood Trail signs will be strategically located at each turn in the Trail. Download the 2015 Dogwood Trail Map or follow the signs for a self-guided spring tour!

Paducah's 51st Annual Dogwood Trail Celebration features a Lighted Dogwood Trail and Daytime Historic Trail. The lighted Dogwood Trail is set to begin Sunday, April 12, and judging of the Dogwoods is tentatively set for Wednesday, April 15

Dogwood Trail Art & Photo Exhibit at City Hall - April 1-June 26

The Dogwood Art & Photography Contest celebrates Paducah’s Dogwood Trail. Winning artists display artwork at Paducah City Hall, April through June, as part of the Mayor’s Art Club.

 

 

The lighting of the dogwood trail in Paducah began in April 1964 when the Civic Beautification Board started the tradition of touring Paducah in bloom at night. Inspired by the beauty of Knoxville, Tennesee's lighted dogwoods, the trail is now a driving tour traversing downtown, LowerTown and other residential neighborhoods. The tour showcases Dogwood, Japanese Maple, Red Bud and Weeping Cherry trees as well as blooming garden areas and other flowering species.

 

Luxury Travel Magazine included Paducah Dogwood Trail's 50th Anniversary Celebration among top Spring Flower Festivals Across America in 2014.
