Join us for this year’s Tulip Time Festival, May 5-13, 2018!
Of course the number one attraction is the tulip itself — and there are literally millions to see, in our city parks, Downtown planters, Tulip Lanes, Windmill Island Gardens, Nelis’ Dutch Village, and Veldheer’s Tulip Farm. See this page for tulip locations.
Tulip Time has been named the “Best Small Town Festival” by Readers Digest, and received USA Today’s 2016 Best Flower Festival! The festival celebrates Holland’s Dutch heritage with 8 days of events and special attractions. If you love a parade, Tulip Time has three – the Volksparade, Kinderparade, and Muziekparade. The Dutch Marktplaats serves up plenty of Dutch food, merchandise, and demonstrations, while the festive Kinderplaats provides kids with a park-full of activities. Throughout town, you’ll have many chances to experience traditional Klompen (wooden shoe) dancing, as well as the Art & Craft Fair, Quilt Show, carnival rides, concerts, theatrical shows, fireworks, trolley tours, and so much more!
