The Daffodilians were originally organized in 1965 as the official Hosting and Visitation unit of the Puyallup Valley Daffodil Festival
The Festival Board of Directors was organized in 1934 to conduct the business of the Daffodil Festival which included putting on special Festival events and providing the financial base for Festival obligations.
In the Fall of 1996, the two organizations merged into one organization called the Daffodilians. Currently, the governing body of the Daffodilians, known as the Board, consists of four elected officers and the Past President (Executive Board Members), five Directors, and five At-Large Board Members.
The Daffodilians are responsible for increasing support and participation in the Festival, putting on special Festival events and providing the financial base for Festival obligations. Other responsibilities are to welcome and host dignitaries and guests from other festivals, take the traveling float to out-of-town festivals, serve as escorts for the Queen and her court, as well as honor guard for the Queen and her float.
The Daffodil Festival wants you to become a part of our Family by becoming a Daffodilian. Become as involved as you want, doing as much or as little as you choose. The whole point is to become involved and have fun. Where else can you proudly point out a Princess in a parade or at a public appearance and say that you helped get them there and know you have made a difference!
