Open: Today Wed April 23
Wed-Fri 12-4, Sat/Sun 10-5
Last Day of the Festival will be Sunday April 27th.
IMPORTANT FESTIVAL UPDATE: April 21, 2014
From now on, we will be slowly cutting off the tulip heads as the flowers reach the "bloomed out" stage. When on the fields please stay back from the tractor as it makes it's turns in the walkways.
Due to the number of people coming this year we may have temporary parking closures when needed to manage our limited parking. We can accomodate lots of cars, but only if people spread their visits out across the day. Weekdays (Wed-Fri 12-4) are the best days to come if you have difficulty with walking as we have limited handicap parking. They are also the best days if you want to ensure a parking spot.
Make the long drive at your own risk that you may have to wait for parking spaces to open up. Other then our challenges on this past Friday due to everyone showing up at the same time at our parking lot, the weekend ran very smoothly, and everyone was able to park without issues.
Parking is limited and only at the Seabird Gas bar, there is absolutely NO PARKING allowed on the Hwy, local roads or on private property. Please do not walk through people's properties.
We will do our best to warn you of these closures through signage on the Hwy's closer to Agassiz. If you see these closed signs, please go for lunch or coffee in Agassiz and Harrison Hot Springs and return at a later time or choose another day to visit.
Facebook is the easiest way for me to communicate during the day so I will keep you posted.
I won't post temporary parking closures only big changes to our hours or open status.
Field Bloom Status April 22, 2014
Most of our varieties are in full bloom . We will now be starting to cut off some of the early blooms as they are almost "bloomed out" Over the next week the fields will be changing daily, more coming into bloom and many finishing.
The only issue is the weather. Come prepared with boots.
Parking located at the Seabird Gasbar 6 km East of Agassiz on Hwy #7
The Street address does not work on Google Maps and takes you to the wrong place. Just head East on Hwy #7 (Lougheed Hwy) Parking is about 6 km along.
This year the fields are a 1 km 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 us on weekdays (W-F) as handicap parking will more likely be available.
All proceeds for parking are going to the Seabird Travel Club allowing families the opportunity to travel when otherwise unable.
