The Parade is held between 3rd and 14th streets on Canon City's Main Street, featuring marching bands and floats, food and fun.

Along the parade route, there will be various food vendors on Main Street, at the nearby Veterans Park and at the rodeo grounds serving tacos, hamburgers, pizza, caramel apples, lemonade, snow cones, Polish sausages, corn dogs and much more -- all the things that make a festival fun!

The Blossom Festival isn't just band music and a great parade, though. The oldest rodeo in Colorado takes place in Canon City on Blossom Festival weekend; the huge Wright's Amusements Carnival provides thrills for all ages all week long; the Blossom Craft Fair has over 100 vendors and an amazing free Kid Zone; and the ClusterDuck concert on Saturday night kicks off a summer of musical fun in Fremont County.

Blossom History


"The first recorded mention of a festival in Canon City occurred in the 1860's in the Canon City Times. By the 1880's, residents were celebrating Fruit Day as both an acknowledgment of their remarkable harvests and a way to acquaint neighboring communities with their bountiful products." Read more
