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.

Wonderful experience. I have lived here for many years and gone to the tulip fields almost every year, despite the large crowds that they draw. Absolutely stunning.

Magnificent feeling, wonderful fragrance surrounds this tulip valley. Tulips with awesome colours and much bigger in size can be viewed here. The views of this park are just amazing.

Love visiting during the tulip blooms. Easy to walk. Parking isn't far. You can take some pretty amazing photos here! Just don't forget your boots it can get pretty muddy depending on weather!

Beautiful place! Lots of people and long ticket lines but they allowed my elderly parents to go to front so that they did not have to wait so long. Nice gesture!
