Welcome to the
TENNESSEE IRIS FESTIVAL
Join us for the 2020 Festival: April 25 - May 2
To Our Community
2019 marks the 40th anniversary of the celebration of the Tennessee Iris Festival here in Dresden. First begun by the Dresden Business Association in 1979 as an annual community Easter Parade, the Festival has grown into an event with a year-round influence in the heart of Weakley County. Whether showcasing the brightest talents in local art and music, playing host to well-known public figures, or featuring the best of area businesses, the Tennessee Iris Festival has built a tradition of excellence spanning four decades.
With this year’s theme, The Stories of Our Streets, the Festival looks back on the milestones that have created the wonderful events that will fill this special week. Even as we honor the past, we celebrate the present and look ahead to a bright future for the Tennessee Iris Festival. The atmosphere of family, food, fun, and community fellowship in historic downtown Dresden promises to point us forward into an exciting week for the Tennessee Iris Festival.
