The 36th Annual Bloomin’ Festival Arts and Craft Fair to be held on Saturday and Sunday, April 18-19, 2020. St. Bernard has been recognized by the Southeast Tourism Society several years as a “Top Twenty Event in the Southeast.”

Bloomin’ Festival is a two day juried arts festival attracting more than 25,000 visitors to the beautiful campus of St. Bernard Abbey and Prep School. Located adjacent to the school is the world famous Ave Maria Grotto. The picturesque landscape of stone cut buildings on the grounds of Alabama’s only Abbey provides a backdrop for the out-of-doors show. More than 150 booths are filled with artists demonstrating and exhibiting their work. The festival is the largest fundraiser annually for the operation and maintenance of the school. Special discounted rates are offered for the weekend to visit Ave Maria Grotto. Completing the weekend is the give-away of a new automobile and other valuable prizes.
