Skagit County, Washington Will Have Over 450 Acres Of Daffodils In Bloom This Spring
If you’ve lived in Washington for longer than about five minutes, you’ve almost certainly heard of the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival, which is beautiful and brilliant and amazing to see in person. But did you know that acres of daffodils start to bloom in the exact same area about a month beforehand, in early March? The La Conner Daffodil Festival is smaller, quieter, and more subdued, but it’s equally as visually stunning.
Note: While the daffodils are already beginning to show signs of blooming in Skagit County, current conditions and legal restrictions will prohibit large crowds from gathering in the area this year. Last year’s festival was entirely virtual. And while visitors are permitted in the public gardens like RoozenGaarde, capacity will be limited, and practicing social distancing is a must. We’re simply drawing attention to these beautiful fields of flowers to lift everyone’s spirits and encourage future adventures.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
Have you heard of the Daffodil Festival? Whether you’ll be celebrating in person or in spirit, we hope these flowers bring you joy.
