After the now – Quartz Hill area was started, a Civic Improvement Association was formed and worked well for a while, but community and business eventually called for a better status symbol.  Thus, in 1948, the Quartz Hill Chamber of Commerce was formed.

In early 1950, Jane Pinheiro and Byron Glenn observed the almond trees coming into bloom, and they decided that Quartz Hill should have a festival at almond blossom time.  The suggestion was taken to the Chamber of Commerce and the Almond Blossom Festival was instituted.  A queen was chosen, a parade planned and the first festival got underway.  It has been an annual event ever since and draws an audience from 2,000 to 3,000 people
