Willunga Almond Blossom Festival | 27 & 28 Jul 2019

Willunga Almond Blossom Festival 50th Anniversary

The Willunga Almond Blossom Festival has been a major fundraising event since 1969, when a local committee decided to raise money to build the Festival Hall. Today, proceeds from the festival continue to fund the maintenance and the continual upgrading of Willunga’s park facilities. This major tourism event draws families from across the state to enjoy the region with blooming almond trees, Saturday Farmer’s Market, plus historical buildings and the popular Fair Day weekend.
