Festival of Spring — A Pick-Your-Own Flower Celebration!

<< More Pick-Your-Own Flowers

Burnside Farms’ Festival of Spring is an annual magical event that signals spring is here and summer is just around the corner!

While the flowers are definitely sprouting, an opening date is still a couple of weeks away; the fields open 7-10 days (on average) AFTER the cherry blossoms peak downtown. Daily tickets will go on sale about a week before the fields open for the season. We’ll update the festival dates on this post, but in the meantime, keep an eye on the farm’s field report here.

With approximately eight acres of gorgeous spring flowers, this festival is one of the largest pick-your-own events regionally. Visitors will find up to 1.5 million tulips and daffodils perfect for picking (and picture-taking!).

Guests can cut their own bouquets, see farm animals, and enjoy family activities, including three bounce features, a playhouse area, short film cinema, a pedal kart track, and more. Extend your day and bring lunch to enjoy in the farm’s partially-shaded picnic area. (Picnic tables tend to fill up quickly on the weekends, so bring a blanket just in case.)

Plus, bring your camera, as the photo opportunities are out of this world!
