The Blossomtime Festival is a celebration of the agricultural industry in Southwest Michigan.
As we continue to face these challenging times and follow the guidelines laid out by the CDC, The Blossomtime Festival’s 2021 Grand Floral Parade has been canceled on May 8th, 2021.
The Grand Floral Parade has been a staple in the Twin Cities of Benton Harbor and St Joseph with the start of the Spring season watching communities, friends and families come together.
This was not an easy decision, as a Board, that we took lightly and represents the Festival’s commitment to the overall well-being of the community at this time. After dealing with one of the hardest questions we have faced, the Blossomtime Festival decided to postpone community pageants until after September 1st, 2021. We look forward to beginning the 2022 season come fall and celebrating The Grand Floral Parade next year, tentatively scheduled for Saturday, May 14th, 2022.
The Festival plans to continue in 2021 with some of our time-honored traditions such as Blessing of the Blossoms and the House of David Baseball Game, scheduled for May 16, 2021. We are hoping to have the Youth Parade, but we are still working on logistics. We also hope to have some other events over the summer that we feel could be possible within the guidelines set during this pandemic.
The Blossomtime Festival appreciates and thanks you for your continued support and we look forward to restoring as many of our annual events as soon as possible. Please visit our website www.BlossomtimeFestival.org or our social media for up-to-date information.
