Blooming Beauty In The North Okanagan


BC’s most beloved Tulip Festival now blooming in the Northern Okanagan

Re-Blooming. After 4 years of hosting the Fraser Valley’s most colorful outdoor event, we are so thrilled to rebloom in the North Okanagan. We are excited to share our passion for flowers and farming with a sunflower festival in the summer and our stunning tulips in the spring!

ABOUT BLOOM

Get to know this third-generation flower growing family

Alexis Szarek is a third-generation flower grower and the creator of Bloom Flower Festivals. After hosting the Abbotsford Tulip Festival for 4 years, Alexis and her growing family have relocated to the North Okanagan where they continue to share their love of flowers. 

Peter Warmerdam, Alexis’ grandfather, immigrated to Canada from the Netherlands bringing his Dutch heritage, horticultural knowledge, and farming experience. Alexis’ vision for Bloom is to share her family’s love of farming and inspire appreciation for locally grown flowers in a beautiful country setting.
