If wandering a sea of vibrant tulips before a backdrop of mountains sounds like heaven to you, then you do not want to miss the Abbotsford Tulip Festival. This annual festival celebrates the coming of spring with 10-acres of tulip fields planted with 35 varieties of tulips in all the hues of the rainbow.
They say seeing is believing but the Abbotsford Tulip Festival presents such an incredibly surreal vista you may doubt your eyes! The fields truly do seem to go on forever; a veritable sea of color in a panorama of breathtaking views.
While this incredible, seasonal vision is more than enough reason to visit the area, the Abbotsford Tulip Festival offers much more than just a unique and lovely view. There are more than enough other activities to make a day of the event.
The festival will have a flower market selling bouquets of freshly cut tulips as well a special “u-pick” area. Wander through the “u-pick” garden and create your own bouquet. Looking for something more substantial than a bouquet? You can also order bulbs, delivered in fall, for your own spring garden!
