The Chilliwack Tulip Festival is right around your corner and so is your chance to pick tulips, take unforgettable Instagram photos, and literally frolic in fields of flowers! This is the largest tulip festival in British Columbia and it's been going strong for 13 years. With Spring right around the corner, we can't wait to grab great big armfuls of colourful flowers!
There's so much more than flowers to see at this festival. Expect plenty of food trucks, tractor rides, traditional Dutch treats and the insta-worthy swing set overlooking the fields of flowers. Plus, in addition to more tulips than you have ever seen in one place, there are also fragrant hyacinths and sunny yellow daffodils. You will definitely go home with enough flowers to fill every vase and mason jar in your home.
A drive out to see the Tulip Festival would be the ideal way to spend a sunny Spring weekend with your friends. Make sure you bring along a friend that you 100% trust to take great photos of you among the tulips! It's the perfect day trip from Vancouver and an absolute must-see this Spring.
According to their website, they anticipate starting by April this year. The exact opening date for the festival and ticket release dates aren't available yet. The Chilliwack Tulip Festival usually runs over three to five weeks depending on the weather.
