We are SO excited to be welcoming people from all over the world to our “local festival with a world class reputation.” Spring is here and millions of stems of tulips will soon be bursting on the scene in a joyful celebration of the season. The Skagit Valley Tulip Festival runs April 1-30 in a joyful return of near normalcy. We invite you to come and join us.
The Skagit Valley Tulip Festival is proud to be a partner with three distinctly different tulip gardens/growers each separately owned and operated — Garden Rosalyn, RoozenGaarde, and Tulip Town and a host of community organizations that help to make our festival happen each year. We have the Kiwanis Salmon Barbecue, the downtown Mount Vernon street fair, a parade in La Conner, Woodfest in Sedro-Woolley, a winefest and quilt walk in Anacortes, plus art shows and more!
Visit Three Distinctly Different Tulip Farms
And, of course, there are tulips! Each of our gardens is unique, offering a variety of ways to experience tulips and our valley. All three gardens offer free parking and all three have on-line ticketing. Each garden sets its own admissions pricing and have a variety of offerings. We suggest you go to www.tulipfestival.org/growers for information and links to garden admissions.
Garden Rosalyn is our newest garden and features acres of tulips planted in beautiful, themed flower beds tulips, a man-made pond with geese and ducks, and plenty of pathways to stroll, giving visitors lots of unique tulip photos. They have children’s activities, allow well-behaved dogs on leashes, and have food trucks and picnic tables on site for tulip fans.
RoozenGaarde is a five-acre garden featuring over one million spring flowering bulbs redesigned and hand-planted each fall in beautiful flowing flower beds, a signature windmill, plus a 20-acre field of tulips. RoozenGaarde is also the grower of the spectacular 350 acres of tulips that are their crop. They have food on site, a gift shop, picnic tables and an endless list of photo opportunities.
Tulip Town is a nearly 40-year-old boutique tulip farm that delivers idyllic days of family-friendly fun each April. Guests can enjoy the iconic windmill garden, a field of tulips in eye-popping colors that visitors can walk in along pathways, old-school trolley treks, a retail area with local artisan wares, a beer and wine garden, a café, and their 10,000 square foot indoor display.
