Blossoms, Sunshine, and Saratoga--Remembering the Blossom Festival

SEE EVENT DETAILS
The Saratoga History Museum is opening a new exhibit February 8: “Blossoms, Sunshine, and Saratoga—Remembering the Blossom Festival.” The exhibit will run through the end of May.

The Blossom Festival originated in 1900 as a celebration of the end of a two-year drought and the resulting beauty of the blossoming orchards. Dr. Edwin Sidney Williams, a retired minister, came up with the idea of the event. The event was so successful it was held each year for the next 40 years—growing larger and larger and reaching 20,000 attendees one year. Williams called the event a “thanksgiving jollification” and became known locally as the “Father of the Blossom Festival.” Come see photos, artifacts, and memorabilia covering this important event that brought governors, senators, and more to see the orchard blossoms of Saratoga.

The Saratoga History Museum is located on 20450 Saratoga-Los Gatos Road in Saratoga and open from 1-4 PM Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
