April Events in Metro Vancouver

Comments 1 by Rebecca Bollwitt

April means flowers, family time, and Earth Day festivals out in the fresh air, like the City of Surrey’s Party for the Planet. There are a lot of Easter Egg Hunts to start the month off on a festive note, and of course the tulip festival in Agassiz that will run through the middle of the month, as long as the weather permits. All this and more is listed below and this list is updated several times a week so if you have an event to add, simply send it in for a free listing.

40 Acres of Tulips
Catch this year’s Tulips of the Valley Festival April 1st to April 12th.
