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 for before or after you wander through the fields, it's such a serene place to enjoy a meal. Also, they don't have any food sales on site (besides candy bars in the gift shop). The only bathrooms are port-a-potties.

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 just 20 south of Portland is quite a surprise as it is all farm country where you can buy product, wine and candy. Nice day trip, but you must have your own transportation.

The best part for me is walking thru the vast fields of dahlias in bloom. There are hundreds of varieties and then visit the underground displays showing cut dahlias. You can purchase bulbs for delivery at planting time.

I've been going to the festival the last 2 years and amazed at all the different varieties. I usually take my mom and cameras. I love taking pics of the honeybees flying from plant to plant. Admission is free and there are plenty of food vendors if hungry. Also, plenty of flowers are on sale too. For those with kids, there's a play area set up by the entrance.
