About the Festival

The Skagit Valley Tulip Festival is one of the destination events for the Pacific Northwest, held from April 1-30. Every spring hundreds of thousands of people come to enjoy the celebration of spring as millions of tulips burst into bloom. As with all things governed by Mother Nature, the tulips bloom according to their own schedule sometime 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. This year Skagit Valley Senior Village has stepped up to sponsor our Volunteer program which logged nearly 1,400 hours in 2014.

Our festival is designed as a driving tour for the visitor as there is no one "site" that you go to for your visit. 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. and Tulip Town and the fields are different each year due to crop rotation. Both RoozenGaarde and Tulip Town also have displays of tulips in gardens for visitors to view and photograph. We hope you enjoy taking in one of the many events and activities that happen only during April.

As the festival continues on its journey - now for 32 years - we welcome people from across the United States and from around the world. The beauty of the flowers truly transcends differences, bringing cultures, ages and diverse lifestyles together to marvel at nature's creation. In 2014 we were proud to greet visitors from all 50 states and from 85 foreign countries.

Was here in late April this year, stunning display although some fields were left unplanted. Despite this it was wonderful to see so many colours with the backdrop of the mountains. Recommend arriving early to find parking and get the best unobstructed views before the crowds set in.

Have been here twice over the past few years and coming from Canada, it's still my #1 place to go for tulips. Prices are super affordable and made me reminisce of the memories I've had at this place. The windmill is a nice touch that makes you feel like you're in Holland, without actually have to buy a plane ticket.

This farm is big. Please wear boots if it’s drizzling day. Anyway, you can feel you’re completely like seeing tulips in Netherland. Great experience! After seeing tulips, it’s easier to find nice restaurants within 5miles.

Beautiful weather.. Bunch of tulip with lot of colors. You can also get the falafel, pita and ice cream in the food court. We can experience our best time in this spring.

Very well maintained fields and parking is sufficient. Only lacking in facilities, portable bathrooms is poor choice for a place that holds festivals every year
