How Brewster in Bloom Started
The Brewster in Bloom festival grew from one unique act into the current celebration it is today! In the 1980s, a group of businesspeople planted hundreds of bright daffodils along the famous Route 6A to mark the start of spring. The brilliant hues of yellow brightened everyone’s spirits after a long, cold winter. This beautiful moment was the inspiration for the start of the 3-day festival that celebrates the coming of spring!
Brewster in Bloom Festivities
There are several great activities and events that make Brewster in Bloom a fun festival. The parade is the star of the show, featuring a different theme every year and impressive floats. Watch from the sidewalk as the parade makes its way along Underpass Road and Main Street. If you’re looking for a challenging athletic event, the Brewster in Bloom 5K is the event for you. If running isn’t quite your activity of choice, then enjoy perusing the Brewster in Bloom craft fair for local artwork. You might just find the perfect souvenir or gift to bring back home! There is also a grand golf tournament that challenges the best putters around. Enjoy 3 days of fun at Brewster in Bloom.
