Skagit Valley Tulip Festival: The Festival of the Year

The Skagit Valley Tulip Festival lasts the entire month of April. Though the heart of the festival is centered around the acres of beautiful blooming tulips, there is so much more to do than just admire the tulips! Below are a few of the many, many events that come with the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival!

The Best Events at the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival

The Tulip Festival

Of course, the tulip festival itself! The Skagit Valley Tulip Festival is designed as a driving tour. However, you can park and walk around some of the fields or even bike ride! The tulips bloom anywhere from the last week of March to the second week of April - whatever Mother Nature has planned! The Skagit Valley Tulip Festival Bloom Map is updated daily so that you can see what tulip fields are blooming
