Flower Mart is Washington’s premier Family spring festival

The 77th annual Flower Mart - May 6 & 7 - 2016

              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. Is the festival always held the first Friday and Saturday in May, ie. Will Flower Mart be held Friday, May 5 and Saturday, May 6th next year? Thank you for all the hard work you and your volunteers put into making this a memorable experience. It was wonderful !!! I look forward to doing the tower and gargoyle tour next year."
