The Daffodil Festival

(Rev. 9/2021)

The Daffodil Festival prioritizes the health and safety of our Princesses, members, and the community we serve. We are committed to comply with all health and safety regulations as mandated by the State of Washington and the Pierce County Health Department.


The Daffodil Festival does not mandate that royalty, members, or volunteers be vaccinated.

Masking & Sanitization

Unvaccinated princesses, members, and guests of all Daffodil Festival sanctioned events are required to wear a face mask that covers the mouth and nose at all times. Those who are vaccinated may wear or remove a mask at their own discretion, so long as it is in compliance with the guidelines of State & Local Mandates and regulations – at times a mask must be worn where required in certain venues, regardless of vaccination status. In all instances, social distancing must be observed where possible.

Temperatures may be taken and contact tracing applied to all of our official events. Proper and frequent hand washing is promoted and hand sanitizer available at all times.

Although many royalty appearances will be virtual, an increasing number of in-person appearances may be made, and only if the venue is in compliance with all health and safety mandates. We ask our supporters and followers to please observe these same rules of distancing and mask usage when in proximity to our royal court members and volunteers.

Thank you for your understanding and compliance during these unprecedented times.

Celebrating Community

The Daffodil Festival originated in 1934 as a celebration of the agriculture industry in the Puyallup and Sumner area. The Daffodil Parade became an annual event where the community gathered, and the daffodil was the exhalted symbol. The celebration gradually grew to make its way through four Pierce County cities in a single day.

Despite the loss of the daffodil farmers throughout the years, Pierce County is still fertile ground, continuing to sprout new ideas and ways of thinking, ingenuity, industry, and innovation. The parade still hosts the beautiful golden flowers, but the true celebration continues to revolve around the community from which it originates, and the people whose hands have built the festival from the very beginning. The high school bands, floats, businesses and local organizations, all hold strong ties to the streets they march, walk, and ride over in the parade. It is for this reason that the Daffodil Festival still flourishes

This Festival thrives, when Pierce County is at its strongest; when the support and spirit of its diverse communities come together. When they share their talents, and take part in a grand tribute to the land they live in, magic happens. That’s the Parade, showcasing a community at its best.
