St. Michaels Daffodil Festival

Daffodil-Festival-LogoCome see St. Michaels and CBMM in bloom for this new spring festival.

Sponsored by the Town of St. Michaels, Maryland, the inaugural Daffodil Festival has planned activities including a Daffodil Weekend Parade, Daffy-Dog Costume Pageant, Daffodil Garden Tours, and more!

In fall 2017, 10,000 daffodil bulbs were planted at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum– as part of more than 20,000 bulbs in the entire Town–through a newly formed community organization called St. Michaels In Bloom. The organization is dedicated to the beautification of St. Michaels. Consisting solely of volunteers, St. Michaels in Bloom works to create a welcoming and vibrant landscape for the Town through the planting of colorful flowers, plants, and trees throughout our business and community districts.
