About Brewster in Bloom...In the mid-1980’s, a group of business people planted hundreds of daffodils along Rt. 6A in Brewster to mark the beginning of spring. What a sight to see after a long, cold, gray winter! From this, the Brewster in Blooms festival was born. The 3-day festival was organized to celebrate spring, bring residents and visitors to town and offer free events.
But the more important charitable cause of the festival is to raise money for the community. The early festivals funded the construction of the band-stand at Drummer Boy Park. Since then, proceeds benefit the Brewster in Bloom grant program providing scholarships for Brewster students and donations to the Elder Brewster Scholarship Fund. $5,000 per year is invested in the program.
