The 54th Annual Borrego Days Desert Festival takes place this year on October 18, 19, and 20, 2019. SAVE THE DATES!
Expanding on our mega wildflower bloom last spring, our theme this year is Bloom In Borrego. This free event is completely homegrown, planned and executed by an all-volunteer group here in Borrego Springs.
We love celebrating our town and the end of summer! It is our annual salute to Borrego including the beautiful State Park that surrounds us, with an open invitation to come and share the Borrego Experience.
The festival will again be held at Christmas Circle but has expanded to include a car show at The Mall on Saturday. The weekend will be full of fun for the entire family. Explore our retail shops on Friday, and check out a few of the vendors at Christmas Circle. Spend the night at one of our campgrounds, resorts or motels.
Stake out your perfect viewing spot Saturday morning for the Parade beginning at 10:00 AM with a fly-over of the State Park plane and local pilots. Pre-parade activities along the route begin at 9:30. Be sure to grab a ballot to vote for your favorite Marching Band. There will also be maps for the kids to participate in a scavenger hunt to win prizes.
Post-Parade, the fun resumes at Christmas Circle. Sara Petite will be headlining our live music this year, followed by performances from local musicians and bands. Enjoy the music while perusing the array of artists, retail vendors, informational booths, delicious food offerings, and tasty treats sure to satisfy any craving. Cool off in the beverage garden with a refreshing beer or wine served by the friendliest bartenders in town. Check out the car show in the Mall parking lot. Place your vote for your favorite band in the appropriate bandbox!
The Kid Zone will include a Pirate Encampment where kids can interact with live pirates, present their completed scavenger hunt sheets for prizes, and maybe learn a little. They can also have an interactive adventure with the Cricket Van, and just perhaps sample a delicious bug or two?
On Sunday there will be more music and entertainment. Take a final cruise around the Circle to pick up that special item you can't leave without.
