North Cascades Photography: La Conner Daffodil Festival

Andy Porter Photography | 03/26/2019 | Festivals, Photo Tours & Lessons, Skagit Valley & Fidalgo Island, The Great Outdoors

The La Connner Daffodil Festival signals the start of spring in the Skagit Valley. As the dreary winter drags to a close the fields of the Skagit Flats slowly come alive. This year’s winter was a bit longer than we're used to; snow was covering the ground only a few weeks ago. Several warm, sunny spring days is all it took to start this year’s bloom. Here is a recent image, "Daffodils under the Moonlight" from March 22, along the La Conner Whitney Road.

The bright colors are all it takes to chase away any lingering winter blues!

Each year the daffodils are in different locations, the Bloom Map shows where the fields are located, and when they are in bloom.

Spring is a wonderful time to hit the highway and drive along the Cascade Loop. Skagit Valley is one of many destinations calling you...

The La Conner Daffodil Festival starts whenever the daffodils start to bloom, which can be anywhere from late Feb until late March.

There is a Photo Contest as well:
