The Cahaba Lily Festival is held on the third Saturday in May each year in West Blocton, Alabama. This annual festival celebrates the unique Cahaba Lily that grows in the nearby Cahaba River. It also aims to bring attention to the beauty all around us and our need for careful stewardship.
The program begins in the morning (roughly 9 am) with indoor presentations by various nature/wildflower groups. Botanist Larry Davenport, an expert on the lilies, presents an informative presentation about the lilies. Lunch is served just before attendees go to the river for viewing the lilies. Later in the afternoon, The Cahaba Lily Center hosts a Story Telling event.
There is no registration fee for the Cahaba Lily Festival. Donations are accepted to cover the cost of the lunch. T-shirts, caps, artwork and various nature-related crafts will also be available from attending vendors for those interested.
