 Apple Blossom Festival Update

After the 2018 Apple Blossom Festival the Westford Kiwanis felt that future festivals may not occur.  This annual event had become larger and larger over the last few years. Membership in the Westford Kiwanis has also declined over this same time period.  This has placed more and more responsibility on each and every Kiwanis member.  Many of us had become “burned out”.  We reached out to the Westford community for volunteers.  The response was very positive.  It was apparent that Westford residents wanted the Apple Blossom Festival to continue.   It is the oldest and largest annual town wide event that takes place in Westford.  As a result the 2019 Apple Blossom Festival will take place.  We still need additional volunteers so if you are interested or have questions check the Latest News section of this page for more information.

Are you curious as to how we select the Apple Blossom Queen?   It is not a beauty contest as some people believe.  Click on “How we choose an Apple Blossom Queen” in the above banner.

The 2019 Apple Blossom Festival 

This year the Westford Kiwanis will be holding its 51st Apple blossom Festival.  This festival will start on Wednesday May 15th and will end on Sunday May 19th.  Our annual Apple Blossom Parade will be held on Saturday May 18th.  All carnival activities will be held at the Abbot Middle School.

As always, our main attraction will be an old fashioned carnival with many rides and attractions along its thrilling midway.  Fiesta Shows will again bring their rides and amusements for our enjoyment.

Saturday night is our big night for fireworks.  This year we have plans for a fireworks display that will be the largest ever seen in Westford.  It will be a combination of last years fireworks that were rained out with this years display.  If you have enjoyed the fireworks displays that American Thunder have provided us in the past then you will not want to miss this one.

Do not forget the Apple Blossom Parade on Saturday.  This event will include over 50 groups from the Westford area.  It has been said that half of the town participates in the parade and the other half watches it.  This will be no different this year.

Remember that there is no charge for parking and no charge for admission to the 2019 Apple Blossom Festival.
