If you’re anything like us here at BloomTV, you’ve been itching for a chance to jump back into life and spend time with people who share the same floral-passions and interests! For the past few years, the pandemic has made safely hosting and attending floral themed events extremely difficult- even impossible. If you’re ready to get involved again and attend some incredible events across the U.S, you’ve come to the right place! Here are three upcoming flower themed events to mark on your calendar. They’re each as unique and exciting as they are fun, so you won’t want to miss them!
Calflowers’ Fun N’ Sun
Fun N’ Sun is back once again for another amazing year! This weekend long event in sunny San Diego is the epitome of summer fun. California is famous for its breathtaking scenery and florals. Join Calflowers for a weekend admiring the stunning beaches and flowers of the sunshine state! Flower farm representatives and flower distributors will be showing off all the best blooms from the season, and leaders in various parts of the floral industry will be hosting panel discussions throughout the weekend. They’re sure to have invaluable advice that you won’t want to miss, plus opportunities to ask questions and make plenty of connections. For a bit of extra fun, the Fun N’ Sun convention will also have a golf tournament at the famous Cornado Golf Course- one of the top golfing destinations in the country.

Atlanta Wedding Extravaganza
For wedding florists, planners, or even just those who love all things romantic, floral, and beautiful, Atlanta’s Wedding Extravaganza is the event for you. While this wedding themed event is only one day long, they do offer a weekend-getaway admissions package that could turn it into the perfect little vacation! Join premier florists and wedding planners for an afternoon that will bring all your pinterest-board wedding fantasies to life! It is also the perfect opportunity to find the right wedding venue, bakeries, honeymoon planners, caterers, and even photographers- there might also be a chance to win incredible prizes for an upcoming wedding or event of your own.
