Annual Bloomin’ Festival set for 40th year in Cullman

CULLMAN — Arts and crafts will be on display for two days next month when St. Bernard Abbey and Prep School hosts its annual Bloomin’ Festival.

Set for April 20-21, the outdoor event, now in its 40th year, features the handcrafted works of artists and craftsmen, music and festival food and is expected to draw more than 25,000 visitors in search of fresh air, unique arts and crafts, demonstrations and family-friendly entertainment in a picturesque setting.

Festivalgoers can expect to find cypress outdoor furniture, pressed flower art, chainsaw carvings, inlay wood furniture, blacksmith copper and iron, Appalachian style straw booth, driftwood art and more.

Along with shopping for handcrafted items, festivalgoers are treated to great food from a variety of concession vendors. Loaves of Monk Bread will also be available for purchase, but festivalgoers will want to arrive early as the delicious treat sells out quickly.

The event concludes with giveaway drawings for a new 2024 Jeep Compass, Apple Watch, IHome AutoVac Nova @1, Apple iPods and a Roku Streaming Stick. Tickets for the prizes are $5 each or six for $25 and may be purchased online.

Festival hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily rain or shine. Admission is a suggested donation of $10 per person with children 5 years old and under admitted free. Pets are not allowed. Proceeds benefit St. Bernard Prep School, a private co-educational boarding school for grades 9-12.
