Join us for the Tulip Festival in Washington
The Skagit Valley Tulip Festival is one of the destination events for the Pacific Northwest, held from April 1-30, celebrating millions of tulips bursting into bloom. As with all things governed by Mother Nature, the tulips bloom according to their schedule some time during the festival. The tulips allow us to share our corner of the world and showcase Skagit Valley agriculture.
We depend on a strong volunteer base to keep our office up and running and to put on our festival activities.
Our festival is designed as a driving tour as there is no one “site” to enter. The fields of tulips are scattered throughout the Skagit Valley, as are the many events and activities that comprise the festival. The tulip fields are the crops of RoozenGaarde/Washington Bulb Co., Inc. Due to crop rotation, the fields are in different locations each year. Four tulip gardens (Garden Rosalyn, RoozenGaarde, Tulip Town, and Tulip Valley Farms) also have displays of tulips for visitors to view and photograph.
We hope you enjoy taking in one of the many events and activities happening only in April.
As the festival continues on its journey – we look forward to welcoming people from across the United States and from around the world. In a “normal” year, we proudly greet visitors from all 50 states and 85+ foreign countries.
