A Visit to The Abbotsford Tulip Festival

Abbotsford Tulip Festival

With a forecast of 20 degrees and sunny, clear skies we knew yesterday was going to be a gorgeous day. So we decided to jump in the car and drive to the Abbotsford Tulip Festival!

The Abbotsford Tulip Festival is located about 1 hour drive from Vancouver and it features 10 acres of beautiful tulips blooming in a breathtaking display of colour! They also have a covered picnic area, a children’s play area and cute photo cut out boards for photo opportunities.

We had a fantastic time and got some lovely photos from our visit.

If you are in the area I highly recommend stopping by, it is absolutely gorgeous there. I also recommend going during a weekday to avoid heavy crowds. I’ve heard about it being so busy on the weekends that people have waited over 1 hour in traffic to get to the festival’s exit. Thankfully we had no issues with traffic and parking was easy too, plus parking is FREE on weekdays!

    This is really amazing. I love tulips! I live only 30 minutes away – I think this would make a great outing for me and my kids. I will certainly check this out – never knew about it before!

    That’s a whole lot of tulips; we planted a bunch of tulips and daffodils in our yard last fall. Looking forward to seeing them pop up this spring!

    I’ve never seen a festival like that and looking at the fields in person must be amazing because they’re beautiful looking at the pictures above
