Grow Your Excitement for Brewster in Bloom
How Brewster in Bloom Started
The Brewster in Bloom festival began as something small. In the 1980s, a group of businesspeople planted hundreds of bright daffodils along the famous Old King’s Highway (Route 6A) to mark the start of spring. The brilliant yellow hues brightened everyone’s spirits after a long, harsh winter. This ignited more elation about spring and has since transformed into the trademark Cape Cod celebration that it is today.
So, when is Brewster in Bloom this year? The 2019 Brewster in Bloom festival is the weekend of Friday, May 3, to Sunday, May 5. So, don’t miss out!
