 The 78th Annual Flower Mart

Friday, May 5 & Saturday, May 6, 2017

Celebrating All Hallows Guild's New Century

All proceeds from this event benefit the gardens and grounds of the National Cathedral 

Here is what a visitor to Flower Mart 2016 had to say the very next day:  "My husband and I attended Flower Mart yesterday, and we had a wonderful time. The food was good, the music was great, and the Cathedral itself as well as the flowers and fruit flowers (amazing) were stunningly beautiful as always. We plan to come back next year and bring our children, now that we know what a day at Flower Mart would be like for them.  It was wonderful !!! I look forward to doing the tower and gargoyle tour next year."
