2019 Rhododendron Festival

  • Roan Mountain State Park 527 Tennessee 143 Roan Mountain, TN, 37687 United States (map)

Since 1947, the community of Roan Mountain has celebrated each June to herald in the blooming of the famous Catawba Rhododendron along the highlands of the Roan. Join us at Roan Mountian State Park on Saturday and Sunday, June 22-23, from 10AM-5PM for a true mountain celebration. Aside from the natural beauty of the blooming Rhododendron, people from all over the world come to enjoy the flavors of local cuisine, browse local crafts and arts, and take in the music of the region.

The Festival will be held around the Roan Mountain State Park amphitheater and pool. Parking is by donation to local civic groups in the park fields along-side Hwy 143. For more information about this event, visit the Roan Mountain Citizen's Club website at
