A great event for young and old with free admission and free parking..........! The festival is the last week in August and by that time the fields are busting with color and it's amazing to see the size of some of the blooms..........! They also have live music, food vendors and wine tasting :) Note - The event is also... More

Nice place to visit and walk around or if you are looking to replace/find that unusual color this is your place to be. When everything is in bloom it is such a wonderful site to check out so bring a camera. You also have an opportunity to learn more about your dahlias from seminars and other fetival patrons. Don't forget... More

I lived in the area for years before going to this, but once I went, I never miss a year. You park right next to the field and the beauty and variety of the dahlias is right there. You can go anytime (check out their hours) not just during the festival weekends. Just outside Canby and combining it with the... More

My wife has been doing mail-order with Swan Island for a few years, so it is probably inevitable that we would attend their annual dahlia festival. For me, our non-stop route from Santa Rosa to Portland made it pretty easy, plus I had never been to Portland and wanted to learn why everybody loves it. We got out to Canby... More

I didn't think I would enjoy going to a "flower show", but hey, this place is worth it. I have been going there for the last two years and this year was the third. This year I did something different - I stayed for the lectures for about 1 and 1/2 hours, and learned a lot. It was amazing to... More

I have returned again to this wonderful place on the outskirts of Canby, Oregon. The owners welcome everyone to visit and enjoy the bounty of Dahlias in all their varied glory. There is limited parking close to the main picnic tables but a lot of parking is available on access roads cut divide the property. The walking is safe but... More

I caught wind of this event on line and instantly knew I needed to go. If you've ever been to the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival and like it--you'll like this. The fields are smaller than the tulip festival but the sheer variety and beauty of the dahlias make up for the lack of size. I suggest you pack a picnic... More

If you have never seen how flowers are raised, this is the place to go. Rows and Rows of more kinds of Dahlias than you can imagine. Every one more beautiful than the next. Pack a lunch, there are picnic tables where you can enjoy the ambiance like you will never get in any restaurant. The Entire are of Canby... More
