Camellia FestivalEvery day in February acres of camellias burst into bloom at Massee Lane Gardens, historic home of the American Camellia Society in Fort Valley, Ga.
The annual Festival of Camellias is a tradition of the American Camellia Society, The festival encompasses the entire month of February when camellia blooms are at their peak. Blooms begin to show color in October and continue through March.
Two galleries of porcelain art showcase the world's largest public display of Edward Marshall Boehm porcelains. Other featured artists are Cybis, Connisseur, and Bronn. New porcelains have been added to our extensive collection.
A landscaped greenhouse is always a delightful place to enjoy camellia blossoms as is the tea house in the Abendroth Japanese Garden. A charming gift shop offers camellia accessories and camellia plants.
Festival events include Senior Citizen Days with box lunches, camellia plant sales, a spring fashion show and luncheon and camellia workshops.
