The Chilliwack Tulip Festival is an annual tradition that draws tens of thousands of visitors from across the region as soon as the fields begin to bloom for their brief growing season. Since it launched in 2006, it has become the largest tulip event in BC with millions of bulbs blooming across 20 acres, showcasing 30 tulip varieties, and 15 types of daffodils.
Chilliwack Tulip Festival Opens for 2022
- When: Every day from April 11th for 3-4 weeks
- Where: 41310 Royalwood Dr, just off Highway 1
- Tickets: Available online only
The various tulip varieties bloom at different times, so that all of the flowers can be enjoyed throughout the season, just in different locations around the fields. There will be between 7 and 20 acres of flowers in full bloom for the duration of the festival.
The first few days will feature the early blooming varieties of tulips, including the “World’s Favourite,” as well as the double daffodils, located in the far field of the farm, so those with mobility issues may wish to visit later in the festival when the front fields are in bloom.
For those wanting to capture perfect keepsake memories of their visit (or simply add incomparable bursts of colour and beauty to their Insta feed), there are several photo-op props throughout the grounds, including seven sets of swings, several raised platforms, a 1950s Morris convertible, and an antique horse cart. Guests can also enjoy the many outdoor lawn games available to play.
Additionally, The Farm Shop will be open daily, offering fresh cut and potted tulips, sunflower seeds for the garden, and tulip-themed souvenirs, along with individually wrapped frozen treats and bottled refreshments. Three food trucks will rotate onsite. Follow the Chilliwack Tulip Festival on Facebook for the latest info and updates.
