Tulip Town and RoozenGaarde on-line ticketing now available; answers to frequently asked questions
April 4, 2021

2021 will be a Different Skagit Valley Tulip Festival.

QUESTIONS:

Tickets: THERE ARE TWO GARDENS AND YOU MUST BUY A TICKET TO EACH GARDEN IN ORDER TO VISIT BOTH GARDENS (RoozenGaarde and Tulip Town). We know there will be restrictions on the number of people who can visit our fields and gardens (and other retail establishments/restaurants/venues) based on COVID guidelines established by the state and county governments. We will be following those guidelines, but still be working to welcome you and help you with your visit.

To Buy Tulip Town tickets, go to https://tuliptown.com/pages/visit.

To Buy RoozenGaarde tickets, go to https://roozengaarde.ticketspice.com/skagit-valley-tulip-festival-tickets.

You will want to experience it all! Check out the two independent gardens under “Meet the Growers” at the bottom of this page.

Tulip Fields: We will be asking you, our tulip fans, to pack your patience, be ready for rules designed to keep you safe (and to keep our workers safe) and to come and enjoy the tulips of our valley in the great outdoors. Besides the two beautiful and very different tulip experiences at Tulip Town and RoozenGaarde, there are 350 acres of tulips planted here in the Skagit Valley — those tulips are the crops of RoozenGaarde which grows the bulbs and tulips for their wholesale, retail and greenhouse operations. You can drive by the tulips in your car; if you wish to get out and walk through the fields, you can do so at the areas where you see parking. There is a charge for parking and COVID related rules will be enforced. Parking on the shoulders of our roads is severely limited as it is farm country with big ditches and narrow roads. Please be aware that law enforcement will issue tickets for vehicles blocking the roadways.

Tips for Touring the gardens: Please note that for both growers, tickets are nonrefundable. You will have to pick a time and date to visit and will have a limit as to how long you spend at each garden. We recommend, if you are going to try and visit both gardens in a day, that you get to one garden in the morning and visit the other in the afternoon. Please be aware that as people come to see the tulips, it will take a while to get to the gardens and to transit between them. We recommend allowing two hours between the gardens. This will give you plenty of time to get from one to another. Even better, we suggest you try one of our great area restaurants as a break between the two. Check out the places to dine section on our website under plan your trip.

We will post additional information  as we have it.

Bloom status: Our tulips blooming, with MORE TO COME (as of April 9, 2021). Daffodils are still in the fields, but they are just about done blooming — lovely bright yellow and white fields. Right now it looks like the tulips PEAK bloom will be between April 12 and 26! Depending on the weather, we may have tulip blooms in May; we will keep you posted on that!

When to Come: If you need to make plane and hotel reservations for your trip, plan on coming between April 12 and 26. And, the nearest airport is SEATAC — you will have to rent a car and drive to Skagit Valley. Look under plan your trip on our website for more information and lodging options. Remember to buy your tickets for the gardens in advance so you will be guaranteed entrance.

Pets: Pets are not allowed in the gardens or in the fields.

Drones: Drones are not allowed in the gardens or in the fields. They are private land owned by private companies.

Children: Please do bring your children. Help them build a lifetime of memories, starting with an annual picture in beautiful fields of tulips.
