International Peach Blossom Festival: The dates vary from year to year, but it usually lasts a month, and it happens in the middle of March when the peach trees are in full bloom. Chengdu is one of the biggest peach growing regions.

Shixiang Lake Tulip Festival: One of the biggest tulip festivals in Asia is held at Shixiang Lake. It is about 93 kilometers from Chengdu.
