There’s an even bigger and better tulip festival popping up in the Fraser Valley this spring

Mark your calendars this April, because Mother Nature’s hosting a 4-week floral fiesta in Agassiz, BC (near Harrison Hot Springs).  From the same family that brought you the Chilliwack Tulip Festival and the Chilliwack Sunflower Festival, the debut Harrison Tulip Festival promises to be their best and biggest floral fest yet.

After a successful run in Chilliwack, the family has moved on to Agassiz and excited to launch their popular festival in new terroir.  But this isn’t just any tulip fest; it’s an epic floral throwdown with 35 acres of rainbow-hued tulips, double daffodils, and hyacinths—over 10 million bulbs planted. Imagine wandering through more than 50 varieties of tulips, 15 kinds of double daffodils, and a bouquet of hyacinths, all with Mount Cheam photobombing your selfies with its jaw-dropping beauty.

And there’s more: a two-acre show garden bursting with mature fruit and nut trees, flowering shrubs, and those Instagrammable paths flanked by tulips, hyacinths, and the new bloom, fritillaria. You can pose on swing sets, next to antique tractors and horse carts, on a vintage bike, in a 1950s convertible and a 1965 Airstream trailer for that #throwback vibe.

If you get hungry, there will be two food trucks dishing out eats daily, including authentic Dutch stroopwafels that nod to the tulip’s homeland Netherlands—because what’s a flower fest without a taste of tradition? Plus, the farm store’s got all your souvenir needs covered, from fresh-cut blooms to something cool to sip.

The Harrison Tulip Festival’s opening date is dependent on the bloom cycle, with exact dates to be announced closer to the opening, so stay tuned. For more info, check out their website (below).
