UAY will be hosting our 17th Annual Festival of Flowers on May 26th at the Johnson County Fairgrounds and you are invited! The theme of this year's Festival of Flowers event is “Look for the Helpers." The flower show will feature nearly 100 creative floral entries from community members and professional florists that will be available for purchase in a silent auction. An on-line auction will feature upscale packages such as dinner parties, interior design services, date nights, photo sessions and behind the scenes access to some of Iowa City's most beloved arts organizations. The evening's entertainment will be the Bloomin' Throwdown - a live floral arranging competition! Charcuterie and wine will be provided as part of your reservation.
