Tulip Festival

For the past 29 years, the Skagit Valley has enthralled visitors with its explosively colorful fields of tulips. The Skagit Valley Tulip Festival, held the entire month of April, celebrates the jewels of the valley with a full lineup of events and plenty of tulip-viewing opportunities.

The festival has become one of the biggest events in the region, attracting an estimated 300,000 and 400,000 visitors from across the world. Once they arrive, they are treated to between 400 and 700 acres of tulips of all colors and varieties, grown by the Roozens of RoozenGaarde and the DeGoedes of Tulip Town.
 
Visitors can enjoy perusing the three-plus acres of display gardens planted with a quarter of a million tulip bulbs at RoozenGaarde or the gardens at Tulip Town, and then check out the variety of activities that take place across the Skagit Valley during the festival.
 
Agricultural and retail businesses alike open their doors to showcase their products, everything from wine and oysters to cheese, while artists use the colorful blooms for their inspirations during several large-scale, tulip-themed art shows.
 
Events during the month-long festival include the Kiwanis Salmon Barbecue served up daily at Hillcrest Park in Mount Vernon; the Tulip Festival Street Fair in downtown Mount Vernon; the Tulip Pedal 20, 40 or 60-mile bicycle ride; the Antiques Safari, antiques appraisal at Cascade Mall in Burlington; the Tulip Frolic of entertainment and kids activities in La Conner; and the World’s Largest Garage Sale at the Skagit County Fairgrounds in Mount Vernon.
 
Many events are free; others include the price of admission.
