Canadian Specials

The Northwest Flower & Garden Festival has some special packages just for Canadians - including exclusive hotel offers and free plant inspection!


Stay at the Crowne Plaza in downtown Seattle and receive complimentary breakfast and a two-day pass to the Northwest Flower & Garden Festival per guest!

Click here to book an exclusive Canadian resident rate at the Crowne Plaza. You MUST book online, as you will not get these rates if you call the hotel directly. For questions only, please call 888-233-9527. Please note this number is for questions only as these rates must be booked online and not over the phone.

Please book your room by JANUARY 2ND, 2019 in order to receive the group rate. Reservations made after this date are based on availability and may or may not be at the group rate.

PLEASE NOTE: You must have a valid Canadian ID upon check-in, otherwise the discounted rate will be revoked and the Best Available Rate will apply. Room rates are displayed per night and include one buffet breakfast and a two-day Northwest Flower & Garden Festival pass per person. All rates include taxes.


Board the Victoria Clipper at Victoria’s Inner Harbour and cruise to Seattle in less than 3 hours. Upon arrival, spend your evening exploring downtown Seattle where you can shop or take in a show at one of the city’s theaters. Ride the Monorail to Seattle Center where a journey to the top of the Space Needle will reveal views of the whole city! Dine at one of Seattle’s trendy restaurants and sample exquisite Northwest cuisine! At the end of the night, retire to the comfort of your downtown Seattle hotel and enjoy a restful night before attending the Northwest Flower & Garden Festival.

Trips are available from Vancouver B.C. to Seattle via Amtrak Cascades, and Victoria B.C. to Seattle on the Victoria Clipper Ferry. These bundles include round-trip tickets, 2 nights’ accommodations in Seattle, one day admission to the Northwest Flower & Garden Festival, and all taxes.


Our huge Plant Market will tempt you in many ways, so don’t hold back just because you are traveling across the border! We offer FREE Washington State Department of Agriculture Phytosanitary Inspection Certification if you buy any plants and/or bulbs at the Northwest Flower & Garden Festival!

Almost all nursery vendors selling plants at the Festival have been pre-certified by the WA State Department of Agriculture. After you have purchased your plants, take them to the WSDA booth. Complete the required forms, and once the plants have been inspected by the WSDA team, you can pick them up. Please note: the WSDA booth closes earlier than the show, so plan to stop by the booth before 4pm to receive inspection for the day.

When you do cross the border, show the customs agent your completed inspection forms. If you are traveling with friends in the same vehicle or on a bus tour, you can list your plants together on one form to make it easier.

Most packaged seeds do not need a phyto, and if you’re unsure if something will pass inspection, just ask the exhibitor!
