The Tulips of the Valley Festival in Agassiz is a Fraser Valley spectacle that many wait all year to enjoy. Millions of colourful flowers spot the landscape, with the impressive snow-capped Mount Cheam looking on.

This year the fields are a 1km walk from the parking area. For safety reasons, everyone (including bus tours) needs to be dropped off at the parking area. Very limited handicap parking available. If you are unable to walk that distance than it would be best to visit on weekdays as handicap parking will more likely be available. To put this in perspective, it would be like walking from Davie to Georgia downtown — it’s not that far! Plus, the beauty of the festival is absolutely worth it.
Adults $3; seniors $2.50; kids 12 and under are free. Groups of 10+ are $2.50 per adult.
Parking rates do apply. All proceeds for parking are going to the Seabird Travel Club allowing families the opportunity to travel when otherwise unable. Cars $5; small buses $10; large buses $15.
