Introducing the First-Ever Harrison Tulip Festival

Our family, the pioneers of the province’s most beloved flower festivals, is thrilled to launch the new Harrison Tulip Festivalsprouting from the fertile ground of Agassiz, near Harrison Hot Springs. You will now find us at 5039 Lougheed Hwy, Agassiz. Our opening date is dependent on the bloom cycle, with exact dates to be announced closer to the opening, most likely in April. The festival will run for approximately four weeks, creating endless opportunities for capturing spring photos, memories, and experiences while tiptoeing around the tulips.

It all started back in 2006 when we launched Tulips of the Valley on Seabird Island just east of Agassiz. After 10 years there, we shifted the festival to Chilliwack, on leased land where the Chilliwack Tulip Festival first bloomed in 2017 and the Chilliwack Sunflower Festival in 2018. Since then, our family has acquired farmland in Agassiz, in the Harrison River Valley, returning to our roots where the flower magic first bloomed. Flower enthusiasts first flocked to our stunning new location last summer, for the Harrison Sunflower Festival.

So, the “inaugural” Harrison Tulip Festival is, in fact, a homecoming for our event, as well as the 18th annual tulip festival organized by our family! This will be the most colourful spring celebration in the province. Come explore 35 acres with 10 million tulip, double daffodil and hyacinth bulbs planted, including more than 50 tulip varieties, 15 double daffodil varieties, and a dozen varieties of hyacinths. A spectacular two-acre show garden features mature fruit and nut trees, flowering shrubs and grassy pathways brightened by thousands of tulips, hyacinths, and fritillaria, a new bloom that promises to be the debuting belle of this year’s festival. To top it off, the unmistakable vista of Mount Cheam returns as the stunning backdrop to it all!

Visitors can create family or group portraits that hearken back to simple and beautiful times, with photo opportunities that include swing sets, antique tractors and horse carts, vintage bicycles, a 1950s convertible, a 1965 Airstream trailer, plus raised platforms that make staging photos easy. We will have two food trucks onsite daily, offering food for purchase, including authentic Dutch stroopwafels. Our farm store also offers souvenirs, fresh-cut and potted flowers, and refreshments for purchase.

Please stay tuned for updates on our social media channels regarding the opening date and ticket availability as the season approaches. If you are looking for more things to see, do and try while you are in the #HarrisonRiverValley, please visit Tourism Harrison.
