Carthage in Bloom

Beautifying Carthage one flower at a time.

Carthage in Bloom, which began in 2018 with the purpose of beautifying the city with flowers, has since blossomed into something more significant.

Annual Planting Days

Every year we help organize and plant flowers in our Downtown Historic District.

Annual Planting Day

Every year we help organize and plant around the Downtown Historic District, adding color and beauty to as many spaces as possible. This event brightens up Carthage, making it a more enjoyable place for the community and visitors. By adding flowers to as many spaces as we can, we create a welcoming and beautiful environment for everyone to enjoy.

Carthage in Bloom Awards

We hold an annual Garden in Bloom Awards program to highlight and celebrate the gardens and landscapes that make Carthage a more beautiful place. During this annual program we take nominations from the community, asking them to select gardens they have noticed and wish to see recognized.

Carthage in Bloom Projects

Carthage in Bloom started in 2018 with a simple and beautiful goal: to add flowers to our city and make it more appealing. But it's grown into something bigger than we ever imagined. While we still love our flowers, this program has expanded its horizons.


Now, Carthage in Bloom is all about enhancing the overall appearance of our town. Whether it's sprucing up roundabouts, giving parking lots a makeover, or adding charm to the Downtown Historic District, this initiative has truly transformed our community. The hardworking volunteers behind Carthage in Bloom have poured their hearts into these projects, leaving a lasting and visible mark of their dedication.


For this wonderful initiative to stay alive and flourish, we need volunteers passionate about beautifying the community and those willing to donate funds for beautification projects.
