Dogwood Trail Celebration

Dogwood Trail

 

Celebrating 50 years in 2014!

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 2014 Dogwood Trail Map or follow the signs for a self-guided spring tour!

 

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

Dogwood Art & Photography Contest - April-June
The Paducah School of Art & Design and the Paducah Civic Beautification Board team up to sponsor the Dogwood Art & Photography Contest, celebrating Paducah’s 50th Dogwood Trail. Winning entries will be displayed at Paducah City Hall, April through June, as part of the Mayor’s Art Club.

50th Anniversary Commemorative Pins
Dogwood pins designed by Paducah Civic Beautification Board member Carol Vanderboegh celebrate the 50th anniversary. Pins in shades of pink or white with embellishment will be available for sale.

 

 

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.
