    Hi Carrie, are you able to tell us when the Cala Lily Festival is on next year, 2013? I would like to bring my wife there for our Anniversary which is on 11th April. We are from Singapore. – Jeff

    Hi Carrie, do you by any chance know what year the first calla lily festival was held? The calla lily isn’t an indigenous plant, so at one point the farms must have started producing these lilies. I just can’t find any information as to when that was.

    Maybe you can help?

    Thanks for informing for me, I thought maybe you could check the website (which is in chinese) and see whether they have any info about the history of the festival, but I don’t know if anything is on there about it. (can’t read chinese). this is their official website: http://www.callalily.com.tw/
