Julian Woman's Club Wildflower Show

May 1 - May 3, 2020

The Julian Wildflower Show has been a historical event for more than 90 years. Because of Julian’s mountain valley location, bordering a national forest and close to the Anza-Borrego State Park, we have 855 species of plants within 25 miles of town, many of which were used for health and healing by Native Americans. The Show is meant to educate club members, local residents, out-of-town visitors and children about the botanical wealth of Julian and its vicinity.
