SKAGIT VALLEY TULIP FESTIVAL

APRIL 1st-30th

TIPS TO PLAN YOUR VISIT

  I visit the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival nearly every year with my family. It's a great activity for all ages and the fields, flowers and vistas are truly amazing. Here are some helpful tips I've learned over the years to help you plan your trip. Sheri

WHAT TO EXPECT

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.

Visit tulipfestival.org/events to see what's scheduled during the festival and download the official brochure.

BEST TIME TO VISIT

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.

GETTING THERE

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

Admission at RoozenGaarde and Tulip Town is $7 per person on weekdays ($6 military with I.D.), and $10 per person on weekends. Children 5 & under are FREE. Parking is FREE. Pets are not permitted. Note: Drones are not allowed in the gardens or fields.

BLOOM DATES ACCORDING TO MOTHER NATURE

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.
