Springtime to be celebration time in Carlsbad

March 13, 2017 by  

The city of Carlsbad will be bidding a warm welcome to spring with an event that showcases its floral agricultural heritage.

Petal to Plate will be a 10-day celebration of the flowers, fine food, wine and other horticultural products that are produced in the area. Each of the 12 experiences that will make up the festivities will offer something unique, such as a tour of the flower fields at Carlsbad Ranch, or sampling the signature drinks that will be crafted for the festival by area mixologists. There will also be spa experiences, golf specials, and much more. Brochures that outline the different activities, along with a map of the community and other helpful information, can be supplied for an event like this by a printer.

According to its organizers, a special function that will be a part of the event will be the American Grown Field to Vase Dinner, which will showcase local flowers as the centerpiece of a meal prepared using seasonable and sustainable produce grown in the area. Regional beers and wines will also be featured.

Petal to Plate will take place from April 20 to 30 in Carlsbad, with the kickoff being the Field to Vase dinner on the first evening. Further information and a chance to register to receive special promotional discounts and other offers can be found on the Visit Carlsbad website.
