Your Guide to the 2020 Brewster in Bloom Festival

History of the Event

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, otherwise known as Route 6A, to mark the start of spring. The brilliant yellow hues brightened everyone’s spirits after a long, harsh winter. This ignited more excitement for spring and has since transformed into the signature Cape Cod event that it is today.
