Bell Buckle Daffodil Day and Best of the Butts BBQ Cook-Off
March 18 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
Held on the third Saturday in March annually. This quaint little festival began in 1978 to celebrate the coming of Spring and the thousands of daffodils that line the roads and farmlands for a six-mile stretch of highway leading into Bell Buckle. Local lore says that ol’ Sawney Webb (who founded the renowned Webb School in 1870) began the mass plantings over a hundred years ago as a ‘character-building’ discipline for some of the school’s more challenging students. In the mid-1940s, a former Webb School janitor named Eugene Brady, Sr. launched an ambitious five-year planting program to beautify the town further.
Now, every March, Bell Buckle bursts into full bloom with a colorful explosion of daffodils and marks the arrival of spring by inviting everyone to come to enjoy a day full of fun, family-friendly activities.
