La Conner Daffodil Festival
It’s just so beautiful in March with the Daffodils blooming and there are so many fun events and exhibits in La Conner during the month of March. If you can’t make it to Skagit Valley Tulip Festival in April, skip the crowds and invite your family and friends in March this year for the La Conner Daffodil Festival!
While the tulips are our most famous blooms, there’s nothing quite as wonderful as entire fields of bright, cheery daffodils against our Mt. Baker backdrop at the La Conner Daffodil Festival.
The Dandy Daffodil Tweed Ride – March 28th
The La Conner Daffodil Festival Bike Ride – Join us in La Conner among the daffodil fields for a dashing bicycle ride with a bit of style. It’s a perfect place to be planted and a beautiful place to bloom. Tally-ho! What is a tweed ride you may wonder! A tweed ride is a return to a bygone era in England when families would dress in their best clothing, assemble a picnic lunch, get on the train with their bicycles and go out to the countryside. Riding their bicycles home.
What would be better than a group ride among fields of daffodils in which the cyclists dress in classic tweed or any smart looking outfit. Any effort made to recreate the spirit of yesteryear is also always appreciated. Any and all bicycles are acceptable on the Tweed Ride. Its a smashing way to throw a party for all our cycling friends to celebrate the arrival of Spring.
Riders should expect a scenic route enjoyed at a slow pace, stops along the way with exceptionally evocative atmospheres, and plenty of time to socialize with other well-dressed, convivial cyclists.
Be sure to stop by one of the visitor centers for maps and other helpful festival guides.
