This award winning 2-day festival, sponsored by the Daffodil Festival Council in co-operation with the Gloucester Parks, Recreation and Tourism Department, was held on Saturday, April 11, from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, and Sunday, April 12, 2015, from noon to 5:00 pm was a huge success! Sunny skies and comfortable temperatures provided the perfect setting for 22,000 plus people to visit last weekend’s 29th annual Gloucester Daffodil Festival. The crowds Saturday and Sunday were exceptional. The kickoff this year’s festival was the parade down Main Street, with 45 units showing their daffodil spirit. The awaited crowd at our Opening Ceremony was there to cheer on are new Queen, Scholarship winner, and all the parade winners. Everywhere you looked people were enjoying our entertainment, shopping our 230 vendors, and having a tasty treat in our food court.
Each year we strive to make the festival bigger and better while still holding on to its small town atmosphere. The festival could not be a success without the support of our volunteers, sponsors, Gloucester County and the community. Mark your calendars now for our 30th annual Daffodil Festival, April 2nd and 3rd, 2016 for a fun-filled family weekend with us!
