The gardens have been called the finest natural display in the world. No camera can capture the glorious and magnificent beauty of the giant Rhododendron Catawbiense when in their peak of bloom in mid-June of each year.

Roan Mountain is a friendly, tiny village nestled beneath the magnificent heights of the mountain that gave it its name. The climate is wonderful and the people are delightful and friendly! In June, celebrate the beautiful bloom at the annual festival held in Roan Mountain State Park. Bring the family for a weekend of fun, food, crafts, mountain music and clogging. Cabins and campground are just up the road.
