In 1944, to honor Temple City's new "Home of Camellia" slogan, the Garden Section of the local Woman's Club organized a flower show and parade of youngsters to highlight the city's official flower. 

What started as a handful of youngsters tossing camellia blossoms to viewers along Las Tunas Drive has now become a steeped Temple City tradition, with the purpose of celebrating local youth and promote their participation in community affairs.

The Festival

The Camellia Festival is held the last weekend in February and welcomes more than 5,000 children in its parade and attracts 20,000 visitors to the carnival.  

Camellia Festival Committee

Annual festivities are organized by the Camellia Festival Committee, comprising local stakeholders and City representatives.
