This year we were not able to hold our usual Flower Mart, but we were online!
Our annual Benefit for the Gardens and Grounds of Washington National Cathedral
Sponsored by All Hallows Guild
and held on the first Friday and Saturday of May.
All Hallows Guild began this annual tradition in 1939. You can become a part of this wonderful community event with your gift in support of Flower Mart. Funds raised directly benefit the gardens, grounds, and woodlands of Washington National Cathedral.
Thank you to our Flower Mart Sponsors!
Even in a year of pandemic, our corporate sponsors are supporting us! This annual event would not be possible without the generous financial support of our corporate sponsors.
Please support the local businesses standing behind us this year.
All Hallows Guild's antique carousel has been a favorite of the young and young at heart for decades. It dates from the late 1800's and is one of only two surviving carousels manufactured by the U.S. Merry-Go-Round Corporations. The carousel was purchased by the Guild in 1963 and we continue to restore and refurbish this historic treasure.
We had planned to introduce our new "Into the Woods" coloring book at Flower Mart 2020. It celebrates the Olmsted Woods - the five-acre woodland on the grounds of Washington National Cathedral. Now that we have gone "virtual" this year, we are offering a coloring page download from the book. WE plan to formally issue the full coloring book next May at Flower Mart 2021. Use the link below to download and print your coloring page. We would love to see your finished work, so post it on social media and tag us @allhallowsguild.
In 2006, the first “Flowers Around the World” exhibit was held in the magnificent nave of Washington National Cathedral. Washington Embassies, their ambassadors, and their floral designers contributed to the creation of gorgeous displays in the bays that run the length of the great hall. The International Floral Display has grown to become one of Flower Mart's favorite attractions. You can revisit the Flower Mart 2019 display via YouTube by clicking the link below.
During the February 3, 1939 meeting of the All Hallows Guild Executive Committee the idea of having a Flower Mart on the Pilgrim Steps was proposed. To read about our humble beginnings go to our blog.
