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 10am and 4pm,  April 14th-29th.

Nothing is prettier in the spring than fruit trees in bloom, and the Hood River Valley Blossom Festival, now over 50 years old, celebrates the arrival of spring in style. Hood River Valley, which spans the north slope of Mount Hood to the south shore of the Columbia River Gorge, is the largest pear-growing region in Oregon, producing 50% of the nation’s winter pear crop. It’s also home to an abundance of cherry and apples orchards.

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.

Here are just a few of the events happening during Hood River Blossom Time:
