Run or Walk to help the young people of Southwest Michigan be the very best they can be.

A portion of the proceeds will go to the Blossomtime Festival Scholarship Fund which was set up to give financial support to the young men and women of our community to further their education and pursue their dreams.  Blossomtime Festival will award over $20,000 in scholarships in 2020.

We stand behind 114 years of tradition, community service, honoring the values set before us, and celebrating our beautiful and prosperous farms, fruit orchards and the agriculture that puts Southwest Michigan on the map.

You’re supporting the hopes and dreams and the future of Southwest Michigan with every step!
