2018 SKAGIT VALLEY TULIP FESTIVAL

The Skagit Valley Tulip Festival is a very exciting time in Skagit County and Spring Break is the perfect time to experience our tulips! I always tell people to head out to the fields mid-week when there isn't as much traffic. I created a Facebook Event called "Skagit Valley Tulip Festival with Kids" and would love to have you join: https://www.facebook.com/events/208983959838757/    I will be posting about the events and activities that make sense for families to go to during the Tulip Festival and encourage everyone to share their tips as well!

Let's answer some of your questions:

What are the dates of the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival?

The Skagit Valley Tulip Festival runs April 1st - April 30th EVERY YEAR although we cannot control the tulips! The tulips may be blooming earlier or later than planned depending on our Spring weather, so it's always a good idea to check the Bloom Map (linked below) to see exactly what's happening and when the best time is to visit.

Where are the tulips in bloom in Skagit Valley?

You will find the Skagit Valley tulip fields located on the west side of I-5 between Highway 20 heading west out of Burlington ending at the La Conner-Whitney Rd. and then bordered on the south side by Chillberg Rd. There may be a few tulip fields that fall outside of that VERY irregular rectangle.  You can find all of the fields on the Roozengaarde Bloom Map.

Skagit-County-Tulip-Field-Map

Link to the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival Bloom Map on the Roozengaarde Display Gardens website here: https://www.tulips.com/bloommap

The famous Roozengaarde Bloom Map is really all you need to lead you to Skagit Valley's tulip fields.  They "light up" the fields that have flowers currently blooming in them by coloring in the flower on the map. You will risk a ticket if you park on the side of the road to take pictures of the tulips and walking in the fields is STRICTLY PROHIBITED! See parking instructions under the Roozengaarde info below.

 

When is the best time to visit the Tulip Festival with my kids?

My suggestion would be to keep an eye on the Roozengaarde Bloom Map (linked above). If the tulips are blooming early - head out the fields as early as possible! There may not be as many flowers, but there also won't be as many tourists! I think the week of Spring Break is the perfect time to go mid-week. Avoid the weekend crowds and head out for a day of making colorful memories. Take extra clothes and some towels for clean-up, I can guarantee you that the fields will have mud in them and mud is a kid-magnet.  Don't worry about it and just let them have a good time. Pictures of muddy kids make people smile! Keep in mind that fields are not stroller friendly unless you have an ORS (off-road stroller).

 

How much does it cost to go to the Tulip Festival?

Looking at the tulips is FREE! Bring a picnic from home and stop at Snow Goose Produce on the way out of town for one of their GIANT ice cream cones! Parking in the Roozengaarde field parking lots is $7 and totally worth it because if you park on the side of the road you may get a ticket. If you go into Roozengaarde Display Gardens and pay admission you can use that ticket to park in their lots free.

 

What will I see at the Roozengaarde Display Garden?

The Roozengaarde Display Garden has gorgeous planned gardens where 100s of photographers take pictures of children and families each year. Their flower varieties are labeled so you'll know which ones are your favorites and you can even pre-order bulbs for the 2019 growing season while you are there. Roozengaarde's hours are 9am-7pm every day in April. Pets are not permitted. Admission is $7 and $6 for military ID.  Children 5 years old and under are free and so is parking. Once you purchase admission you can use their admission ticket to park in any of the parking lots they own near other tulip fields so you can get out of your car to view them on the same day. You can still park in their parking lots even if you did not go to the actual display garden, but the parking fee will be $7. https://www.tulips.com/

 

What can we do at Tulip Town?

Tulip Town is SO MUCH FUN for kids! They have huge fields planted with every color of tulip you can imagine. They also have display gardens that include a windmill that looks like it is straight from the Netherlands (it might be - seems like I heard that somewhere). They also have a large indoor area where you can view the tulips and kids can get their face painted (not free) while you enjoy a cup of coffee. Tulip Town's hours are 9am-5pm every day in April. Pets are not permitted. Admission is $7 and children 6 years old and under are free and so is parking. Tulip Town has a TROLLEY that takes you around the perimeter of their tulip fields. You are seated up above the fields, so you can get great pictures of the tulips.  It's also a good way to go if you want to see all the fields and you have toddlers. The trolley does cost extra - $2adults/$1children and only runs from 10am-4pm weather permitting. There is a huge field available for kite flying, so bring your own or buy one there. http://tuliptown.com/ LOCALS ONLY NITE is April 11th from 5:30pm-7pm. Locals (all Skagit Valley residents) get in free as a thank you from the DeGoede family. The trolley will be running and it's a really fun event to attend.
