Contact Alexandra Blossom Festival

The Central Otago town of Alexandra shines in spring weather with blossom-lined streets and orchards in full bloom.

The Alexandra Blossom Festival, which celebrates its 58th anniversary in 2014, marks the arrival of spring in the region, while paying tribute to the stone fruit and wool industries that form the lifeblood of this small town.

The Alexandra Blossom Festival is three weeks of fun and entertainment with events like the Race Around the Clock — adrenalin-charged competitors run, swim, kayak, ride horses or pedal mountain bikes to conquer the steep terrain and icy river which makes up the course to Alexandra’s unique, illuminated clock on the hill.

The festival includes other local highlights such as The Grand Procession — complete with strikingly decorated floats and Float Princesses who each vie for the title of Festival Queen and the Mardi Gras, Party in the Park, "Thunder" Sunday (drag racing), Garden Tours and the Wool On Fashion Event (a fashion and design competition that encourages the creative use of the high quality wool produced in Central Otago.)

Many other associated events, activities and exhibits take place around Alexandra during the Festival, so gather your friends and family together and be part of this wonderful spring celebration.
