Help Support the Blossomtime Festival

Dear Friends,


We hope this finds you staying safe and healthy!


Like so many other in-person events, the colorful floats, marching bands and pageantry of the annual Blossomtime Parade was greatly missed this year---one of Southwest Michigan’s oldest and beloved traditions!


Another time honored event historically held on parade day is The Run for the Buds. Whether you’re a runner or walker, young or young at heart, this family friendly event kicks off the day meandering through the streets of St. Joseph and Benton Harbor As a non-profit organization, the Blossomtime Festival is sustained by the support of the communities of Berrien, Van Buren and Cass Counties.


Your financial support has been the core of sustaining these hometown events and providing opportunities for generations of children and young adults for 115 years. The show must go on! You have an opportunity to be part of the future of the Blossomtime Festival by signing up for our Virtual Run for the Buds 5k Walk/Run! This event is not limited to the Southwest Michigan area and can be done by anyone who chooses to participate; we encourage you to share with your family and friends.


You’ve always been there for the festival in the past and we're hoping you’ll help us reach our goal of raising $20,000.  By donating to this event, you’re helping the Blossomtime Festival keep our traditions in Southwestern Michigan.


Whether you run, walk or want to make a contribution, please consider visiting

or for more information. Please feel free to contact our office if you have any questions.


Better and brighter times are coming; we want to be with you now and in the days ahead.


With gratitude,

The Blossomtime Festival
