The Marigold Museum ~ Friends, Family and Memories

The Marigold Museum is back this year, as we proudly celebrate the 40th Pekin Marigold Festival.  Our Festival has always served as a community gathering point - a reunion - where we run into friends and acquaintances that we often only see during this special weekend. It is a great source of nostalgia, as we recall a wealth of memories of time well spent. Each of us has our own "Marigold Memories" or "Marigold Moments" that are special to us. In an attempt to recapture some of those moments, the Marigold Festival has established the Marigold Museum. You will find it in the Mineral Springs Park Pavilion during Festival Weekend. There are displays and memorabilia as well as a festival time-line that should help bring your own special memories to mind. Please take a moment to visit and reconnect with a past full of friends, family and memories.  Enjoy the 40th, as we look forward to many more years of festival success!
