Tulip Festival 2014
IMPORTANT FESTIVAL UPDATE: April 18th
We will be Open tomorrow from 10 -5. Due to the number of people coming this year we will have temporary parking closures throughout the day and throughout the weekend.
Make the long drive at your own risk as you might be turned away.
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.
Mid day is the busiest time.
I am very sorry for the inconvenience of our early closure today. It was the only way we could manage the dangerous parking and pedestrian situations that were occurring everywhere.
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 Bloomn Status
Many of our varieties are in fulll bloom . About 3/4 of the field is showing at least some colour, 1/2 in full bloom. Over the next 10 days the fields will be changing daily, more coming into bloom and many finishing.
The only issue is the weather. Come prepared with boots,

The above address works on google maps but not on iphone maps. The map below is where the parking is located.
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.
Kids 12 and under: free
Groups of 10+: $2.50/adult
Parking Rates Temporary closures will occur on weekends
All proceeds for parking are going to the Seabird Travel Club allowing families the opportunity to travel when otherwise unable.
Field Update: April 17, 2014
Many of our varieties are in fulll bloom or hald way there. About 1/2 of the field is showing at least some colour, 1/4-1/3 in full bloom. The only issue is the weather. Rain (we are currently having lots of it) means very slippery conditions. If you want to brave the weather, please bring boots or other good mud safe footwear. Remember you are visiting a farm!
Here is how our fields are looking right now April 15, 2014. The above orange are almost in full bloom as are the red above. The rest of the fields are showing some colour throughout, though mostly just a hue. Below, some pinks, purples and other oranges are starting along with a large variety of White.
