Tulip Town Unveils on-line ticketing; RoozenGaarde to follow shortly; answers to frequently asked questions
February 23, 2021

2021 will be a Different Skagit Valley Tulip Festival.

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. We have two beautiful and very different tulip experiences at Tulip Town and RoozenGaarde, plus 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 will want to experience it all! Check out the two independent gardens under “Meet the Growers” at the bottom of this page.

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. Tulip Town has set their ticketing policy; you can find out more at https://tuliptown.com/pages/visit. We will post information about RoozenGaarde and the fields when we have it.

Our tulips ARE NOT blooming (as of February 23, 2021). Exactly when they begin to bloom will largely depend on the weather in March — a cold March, a tulip bloom starting later in April. A warmer March, a tulip bloom starting earlier in April. We will let you know when the tulips are getting ready to bloom. As in most years, it is unlikely we will have tulips in bloom in May; sometimes tulips do start blooming at the end of March. Daffodils will be blooming sometime in March.

If you are wanting to plan your trip here to see the tulips in advance, we suggest planning it for the middle of April. That way, regardless of when the tulips begin to bloom, you will still see lots of tulips. We will keep you posted as we have more information.
