Celebrating its 16th year of promoting recreation and the beautiful outdoors, the Coachella Valley Wildflower Festival returns to Palm Desert’s Civic Center Park on Saturday, March 4, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Presented by Friends of the Desert Mountains, the festival features skilled local artisans, shopping and information booths, enchanting wildflower displays and an exciting raffle. A huge interactive Kids’ Zone and “Naturally Inspired” youth art contest brings families from all over Coachella Valley. Local food trucks and beverage concessions will be available along with a beer and wine garden for adults. Live music performances will add just the right note to the festival, as well.

This FREE event is fun for all ages and helps promote education, environmental stewardship, land conservancy, and an appreciation of our fine Desert Mountains.

Kicking off the Wildflower Festival will be the FODM 5K, an exciting trail adventure in the Santa Rosa and San Jacinto Mountains National Monument. Run or walk on natural desert terrain raising funds to support conservation of these wonderful desert lands.

Civic Center Park is located at 73510 Fred Waring Drive, Palm Desert. For more information about the Wildflower Festival or 5K run, visit www.desertmountains.org or call the Friends of the Desert Mountains’ office at 760-568-9918.
