2023 Pear Blossom Festival

70th Annual Pear Blossom Festival
"ComPear Past & Present"
Parade Grand Marshal: Chip Wright

Since 1954, tens of thousands of southern Oregon locals have cherished the Pear Blossom Festival and its many events!

Through it’s 70 year history associated events have been added, including the Scholarship Pageant, Run, and Street Fair. In recent years, the Pear a Fare (local artisan food & beverage tent) and the Smudge Pot Stroll (downtown restaurant event) have been added to make “The Pear Blossom” a true “Festival”. We are very excited for 2023 to give even more of our community an opportunity to be involved in Medford’s oldest tradition!

The Pear Blossom Parade has grown from 20 wagons and youngsters in the first event to today’s 150 entries with 4000 participants and 25-30,000 enthusiasts lining the parade route. The Pear Blossom is a pillar in our community emphasizing family values, commitment and pride in our Rogue Valley. Scholarships for area high school senior girls have been a hallmark of the Festival Association since 1991.
