Flower (And Flour) Power In Canby

You could say flower and flour play a big role in Canby. From the beautiful blooming flower fields at the Swan Island Dahlia Festival in August and September, to the flour used at the many amazing bakeries, the city definitely has some flower (flour) power. The question is, how can you tap into that?

One of the best ways is to grab some goodies from one of the local businesses and then bring them with you to the festival to enjoy one of the most picturesque picnics you've ever had. 

Options abound when it comes to treats and eats to take to the festival. Here are a few ideas.

Baker's Prairie Bakery - Grab a dozen (or so) French Macarons. The flavors change weekly, so you may want to make multiple visits.

B's Bake Shoppe - Grab a loaf of their sourdough baked fresh daily to make sandwiches. Add in some Ebner's Meats and you've got a winner. 

Wayward Sandwiches - Let them make the sandwiches for you and save some time. We suggest the panini of the month or the Wayward Club.

King's Farm To Table Canby Market - You can pick up literally everything you'd need for a great picnic here. With BBQ meats, sides and salads, you'll create such a great picnic spread that your dinner table will be jealous. 

The Swan Island Dahlia Festival is a celebration of color and the ingenuity of the family behind this beautiful farm. Each year they debut new breeds of dahlias never before seen by the public alongside some perennial favorites. From dinner plate dahlias the size of your head to small, delicate but brilliant blooms, the variety is incredible. 

The event itself is filled with more events. Both August and September are packed with various fun additions. From classes on creating professional-level floral arrangements, art classes, Sunday markets and various food trucks on site, there's enough going on to keep you here for a full day.
