Tickets: $13-25 for adults, $7-17 for seniors and children. Kids 2 and under are free. Prices vary based on the day of the week and whether you purchase in advance or same-day. Seasons passes are also available. Tickets are only available online.

What to See: The festival takes place on a working farm in Chilliwack. There are 20 acres of flowers including 30 varieties of tulips, 15 types of daffodils, and 10 types of hyacinths. In total, there are over 6.5 million bulbs! Different tulip varieties bloom at different times so you are guaranteed to see beautiful flowers each day of the festival. You may even want to make repeat visits since the farm looks different each day.

What to Do: Wander through the fields and admire the flowers. The site is also set up for photo ops with props like swingsets and a windmill and elevated platforms so you can get the best shot. They also have an on-site shop where you can buy cut flowers or tulip bulbs to take home. If you’re hungry, there are food trucks too.

What to Bring: Dress for the weather. Bring rainboots since the fields can be muddy.

Good to Know: Dogs are allowed on leash. Smoking is not allowed. Drones are not allowed due to Transport Canada regulations.

About the Farm: The Chilliwack Tulip Festival partners with Onos Greenhouses, which owns and grows the tulips on their farm. At the end of the season when the blooms are done, Onos Greenhouses collects the bulbs for use in their greenhouse operation. They produce cut tulips that you can buy throughout Western Canada and the northern United States.
