Tulips in British Columbia
The most beautiful tulips festivals in the World – in B.C.!
Today, enthusiasm for the flowers has triggered the Abbotsford Tulip Festival, which is the vision of tulip farmer Alexis Warmerdam. Going into its second year, the festival boasts more than 2.5 million of the flowers from over 40 varieties (currently, 75 wild species are accepted by botanists) over 10 acres. It’s estimated that more than 100,000 people came out to Abbotsford for the festival’s first year.
The Tulips of Valley Festival takes place each April and its opening dates depend fully on the weather. Every year we look forward to opening our gates and seeing the delight on people’s faces as they wander around our tulip fields, snapping pictures to their hearts content. While on the fields you will also be able to enjoy fresh Dutch Stroopwafels and enjoy different food offerings from some local food trucks. Also stop by our store to buy your fresh cut greenhouse tulips, potted tulips and photo cards.
