A Community Newspaper for the way we live

The days are getting longer as winter is coming to an end and spring is bringing new life. Soon, Hood River Valley will be covered in colorful floral displays as pear, cherry and apple buds blossom across thousands of acres of orchard that make this valley so special. Help us celebrate this momentous event at our annual 2019 Blossom Fest Craft Show and Blossom Fest Quilt Show and Sale.

These two popular events take place Saturday and Sunday, April 20-21, from 10am to 5pm. The fairgrounds are located in the midst of orchard country at 3020 Wy’east Road, near the community of Odell.

The Blossom Craft show features something for everyone. Over 120 vendors from around the Northwest will be on hand offering unique arts and crafts, garden art, rhododendrons, azaleas and other yard plants, handcrafted home furnishings and decorations, gourmet foods, wine tasting, jewelry, pottery, clothing, and much more.

Odell Garden Club will hold their popular plant sale Saturday. The Hood River Valley High School FFA organization will be there both days offering a variety of plants for sale from their greenhouse, and professional growers of shrubs and plants will be available for helpful gardening tips.

The Columbia Gorge Fruit Growers will be offering tasty Hood River pears fresh from controlled atmosphere storage for sale. The Special Olympics organization will be there with a fundraiser to support their important work, and the Hood River Art Club will have a gallery-style display of paintings and fine art.

Along with the Blossom Craft Show, the annual Blossom Fest Quilt Show and Sale will be taking place at the fairgrounds, in the Floral Building. More than 100 beautiful handmade quilts will be on display, with many of them for sale.

Follow the signs to the Hood River County Fairgrounds, located at 3020 Wy’east Rd., at the intersection of Wy’east and Summit Roads, south of Hood River near Odell.
