Dogwood Trail Celebration in Paducah, Kentucky

Written By: Visitors Bureau

Driving destinations are on our radar and this April we’re thinking Paducah, Kentucky, is the place to be. Paducah’s Dogwood Trail Celebration showcases approximately 12 miles of brilliantly blooming trees and gardens through historic downtown Paducah, the Lower Town Arts District, and other residential neighborhoods. The celebration starts when the Dogwoods bloom, usually in mid-April. Walk, bike, or drive the trail to see blooming dogwood, Japanese maple, redbud, and weeping cherry trees as well as seasonal flowers.

The lighted trail can also be enjoyed at night, as been the case since the town began lighting the trail in 1964, inspired by Knoxville, Tennessee’s lighted dogwoods.
