Bloomin' Temple Festival
2021 Bloomin’ Temple Festival Canceled
Parks & Recreation festival to return in 2022
The City of Temple Parks & Recreation Department will not hold Bloomin’ Temple Festival this year, but preparations are underway for the event to return in 2022.
“A number of factors went into this decision, including COVID-19 protocols, entertainment availability and ongoing infrastructure projects in the downtown area,” Parks & Recreation Director Kevin Beavers said. “We will continue developing safe, alternative programming for our residents as we look forward to being with everyone again in the future.”
Bloomin’ Temple Festival, a major Central Texas event that attracts more than 12,000 attendees each year, was scheduled to take place in April at the MLK Festival grounds in Downtown Temple. The two-day event features live music, arts and crafts, carnival and family fun.
The Parks & Recreation Department has held several smaller, socially distanced events recently and is working to develop additional opportunities.
“Our goal is to provide unique, fun and entertaining events for all of Temple to enjoy,” said Senior Special Events Coordinator Holly Leiferman. “Summer 2021 will be a lot of fun as everyone starts getting back in the groove, and the events team has already begun discussions for the 2022 festival.”
Bloomin' Temple is under the management of the City of Temple Parks and Recreation Department and is located at the Martin Luther King Jr. Festival Grounds. (301 S. 4th Street)
