Bloomin' Holidaze 

Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, November 10, 11, and 12, 2017

More than 1,500 visitors kicked off the holiday season at the fifth annual Bloomin' Holidaze. Exquisite floral arrangements by talented Wisconsin floral designers filled the galleries creating both a visual and aromatic experience. Local makers lined the atrium selling holiday gifts, sweet treats, and of course, flowers and wreaths. Visitors were able to indulge in the Bloomin’ Café, shop Wisconsin art in the MOWA Shop, and attend expert demonstrations and talks ranging from do-it-yourself flower arrangements to cooking with lavender to the unveiling of MOWA’s Cultural Campus design.

It was a fantastic floral extravaganza – see you in 2018.
