Daffodil Flower Festivals, Events

Imagine stepping out of your car and into a field where nearly half a million daffodil bulbs are in bloom! The annual daffodil blossoms at Daffodil Hill in Volcano show their colors around late March through the first three weeks of April each year. What a site! And it's absolutely free to see. Note: The unusually dry, warm weather may cause the blooms to come early so be sure call or check the websites listed to confirm the dates!

Spring's arrival to the historic town of Julian will be announced when over 3 million daffodils burst into bloom in Julian's townsite, and along Julian's roadsides and meadows. This mountain community, located just 60 miles northeast of San Diego, will once again be transformed by a parade of vibrant blossoms, which are renewed by Julian's occasional snowfall and refreshing spring showers.

Daffodils usually bloom from late February through March, subject to change in weather.

    February 14, 2019 - Even more snow is predicted over the next week! Here are some pictures from Feb 11th to show the current condition of Daffodil Hill. As always, we will try to keep everyone updated as to when we anticipate opening for the 2019 season, but it's looking like it might be a while!
    January 24, 2019 - As we enter 2019 we have received many excited inquiries as to when we will be opening! We typically try to open our gates to the public around mid-March assuming we have good weather and the flowers are in bloom. Daffodil Hill is located in Volcano, CA and sits at approximately 3,000ft elevation. As a result, our flowers bloom much later than those you may see in lower elevations. In the off-season, family members planted 6,000 new bulbs in anticipation of a great season! We will be sure to post updates as we grow closer to an opening day! - The Ryan's
    Due to unusual spring weather, Daffodil Hill did not open in 2018. Stay tuned for 2019 info in the spring.
