BLOOM - Abbotsford Tulip Festival returns for another year!
Spring is here and our tulips are in bloom. Pack a tasty picnic basket, or visit one of our convenient food trucks on-site and enjoy a fun filled day with family and friends. Besides a covered picnic area, Bloom is also home to photo cut out boards and a children’s play area. That’s on top of acres upon acres of rainbow-coloured fields that are every bit as impressive as they are decorative.
Looking to bring some of the beauty home? You’re in luck. Bouquets of fresh cut tulips will be available at our on-site flower market. For those wanting the full farm experience, simply wander through our designated u-pick area and build a bouquet of your very own. (For beginner or avid gardeners, bulbs may be ordered at the market and will be delivered in the fall.)
Did you capture a great photo at the festival? Or likely, dozens of great photos?
We’d love to see them. Post them on Facebook and tag #Bloom in your post.

Awakenings features three artists whose work encompasses themes of growth and renewal, trauma, personal identity, and our place in the natural world. Moments of heightened consciousness, where you become aware of the world and begin to see it in a new way. These moments are often very powerful and leave a lasting impression. In Awakenings, artists Suzanne Laird, Helena Wadsley, and Yvonne Dale present works that hope to inspire these moments for the viewer.
