Julian Woman’s Club is a community service organization where members are encouraged to be actively involved. Members are able to meet and work with other women, develop new friendships and choose activities that provide fulfillment and benefit the community.
Meetings are held at 1:00 pm at the clubhouse on the first Wednesday of each month, except July and August. Luncheons are held at Noon prior to our meetings in September, March and June. Donations received at the luncheons go toward scholarships for graduating high school students.
The Julian Wildflower Show occurs each May in the week prior to Mother’s Day. This event began in 1926, the year our club was chartered. Wildflowers are gathered by members in distinct geographical areas surrounding Julian. Hundreds of varieties of flowers are exhibited and they differ each year depending on weather conditions. This event is free to the public. Located in Julian Town Hall and supported by the Julian Chamber of Commerce.
Apple Blossom Tea A full English tea is served twice on the second Friday of June each year. We provide door prizes, favors and a silent auction of gift baskets. The cost is $25 per person. Reservations must be made in advance since we have a full house for both teas.
Heritage Quilt Show Our quilt show exhibits antique, art and contemporary quilts made by experts and beginning quilters of all ages. We feature quilts made by world-renowned quilter Eleanor Burns and we raffle off a quilt made by our members under Eleanor’s supervision. The quilt show is free to the public. We raise money through the quilt raffle and by selling quilts and boutique items hand-made by our members. Located in Julian Town Hall and supported by the Julian Chamber of Commerce.
Apple Days Festival We hold a pie contest during Apple Days and slices of the entries are sold at the festival at Menghini Winery, along with Julian Pie Company pies and local apple cider.
Holiday Home Tour This event is held the second Friday in December. Five homes are selected for their distinctiveness and are highly decorated for the holidays. Two tours occur, one in the am and one after Noon. Guests meet at the Methodist church, are assigned to a car and are driven to each of the five homes. The cost is $20 per person and reservations are required.
The Julian Back Country Quilt Trail was organized in 2014. A quilt trail is a driving route through rural areas along which property owners have decorated their businesses, barns, outbuildings or residences with painted wooden quilt squares viewable from the road.
