The Blossom Festival is a perfect opportunity for the winter-weary to visit the Hood River Valley for a dose of Oregon’s springtime sunshine. A gorgeous drive along the loop of the Hood River County Scenic Tour Route is the centerpiece of the longtime celebration, and winds through the Festival’s activities at over 20 different venues.
Events typically include a Blossom Fest Craft Show, Blossom Fest Quilt Show, a farm “pansy party,” a grange blossom dinner, and a fire department all-you-can-eat breakfast. Visitors can also get a real taste of the Gorge at several wine and beer-tasting events.
The Festival’s main stars–the beautiful pink and white fruit tree blossoms–are best viewed from the comfort of your car. The Blossom Festival tour route is 47 miles long and averages about 1.25 hours. Most of the Hood River Fruit Loop member farms are located on the route and offer special blossom-time activities during this very special weekend.
Visitors are welcome to drive by and pick-up a Blossom Fest Special Events Guide at the Hood River County Chamber of Commerce road-side stands between 9am and 4pm on Saturday and Sunday.
