There are two display gardens with more than a million bulbs in
every color imaginable! Stroll through the gardens to find your
favorite picture spot. You can order bulbs, buy cut flowers and purchase gifts. The display gardens (RoozenGaarde and Tulip Town) offer completely different experiences. Make sure to take in an event or activity. There is truly something for everyone.
Tulips are expected to show early color in the first week of April
and reach peak bloom in mid-April. Of course this could change
depending on weather conditions. The two display gardens have
several different varieties planted that will bloom throughout the
season. The least crowded times are weekdays, or on weekends
during early morning (right at opening time) or late afternoon. The
gardens are open daily from 9am to 7pm.
The gardens are 60 miles north of Seattle. Use exits 221-231 off
I-5. All of these exits have tulip brochures at nearby businesses.
The festival is designed as a driving tour. Walking or biking is an
option, but keep in mind that events and activities are miles apart.
Admission is $7 per person at RoozenGaarde ($6 military with
I.D.) and $7 per person at Tulip Town. Children 5 & under are
FREE. Parking is FREE. Pets are not permitted. Note: Drones
are not allowed in the gardens or fields.
The tulips grown in Skagit Valley do not bloom according to a precise calendar and schedule predetermined by humans. Instead, the tulips bloom according to Mother Nature -- their schedule depends on the weather, particularly the weather in late winter/early spring. The tulips and daffodils only bloom once a year. Check the map below and watch the progress of the blooms.
