Daffodil ColorFest is Gibbs Gardens’ annual celebration of spring and the stunning yellow flower!
Daffodils are an enchanting reminder that spring is just around the corner. With longer and warmer days, spring break, and a lot more vibrancy, there’s a whole lot to celebrate! Luckily, Gibbs Gardens host an annual celebration of this blooming lovely reminder from nature.
Their Daffodil ColorFest features millions of daffodil blossoms — representing more than 200 varieties of early, mid & late bloomers, and covering 50 acres of hillsides & valley. Explore the magical fields of endless daffodils, guaranteed to put some spring in your step. It’s also an awesome way to stock up on some springtime content for the ‘gram.
However, Gibbs Gardens is a 300-acre estate, graced by 220 acres of artistically landscaped gardens. From canopies of white dogwood, to flowering cherry trees, majestic forests to a magical waterfall. It truly is an incredible place to celebrate the changes of the seasons – all year round!
However, this time of year is definitely one of our favorite seasons to visit, with over 20 million daffodils and the change in the air as we transition from winter to spring. The gardens have even added 577,000 additional bulbs, making it their brightest iteration to date!
The Daffodil ColorFest will take place for as long as nature allows with the gardens officially reopening on March 1, but there are early, peak, and late bloomers, so the grounds should be glowing yellow for a while. General admission for Gibbs Gardens costs $25 for adults and $10 for children. The gardens are open 9AM until 4PM, and all guests must leave by 5pm.
