Companion Card Accepted at Willunga Almond Blossom Festival

As the Willunga Almond Blossom Festival moves into its 49th year, this festival has gone all out to present a bigger and brighter event with activities for people of all ages. Of course, it wouldn’t be an almond blossom festival without plenty of almond-related activities. At the Almond Hub, visitors can enjoy cooking demonstrations by local chefs, talk to authors of almond-related books, browse the historic display of newspaper articles, stories, ball gowns, and other memorabilia and purchase tasty Willunga almonds. Kids can follow the Children’s Almond Trail (which includes a colouring competition), name the almond tree knocker on the oval, and receive a heart shaped tin full of almonds. And be there on Sunday to enter the almond cracking competition – all ages can take part.

There is so much more to see and do, including the Almond Blossom Parade down High Street on Sunday morning. See more.
