The Royal Bavarians were formed in 1974, in order to support the Autumn Leaf Festival Association in Leavenworth, Washington. The organization became a member of the Northwest Festival Hosting Group several years later. Members of NFHG support other members' festivals by participating with their Floats in their parades. Each Festival offers a Hospitality Weekend Packet for visiting festival members.
Other members of NFHG are: the Tacoma Daffodil Festival, the Wenatchee Applarians, the Spokane Lilac Festival, the New Westminster Hyack Festival (British Columbia, Canada), the Portland Rosarians, the Marysville Strawberry Festival, the Olympia Capital Lakefair, the Seattle Seafair Commodores and the Penticton Peach Festival (Canada).
