Skagit County Tulip Festival 2017

What to Expect

There are two display gardens with more than a million bulbs in every color imaginable! Stroll through the gardens to find your favorite picture spot.

You can order bulbs, buy cut flowers and purchase gifts. The display gardens (RoozenGararde and Tulip Town) offer completely different experiences. Make sure to take in an event or activity.
Note: Drones are not allowed in the gardens or fields. Visit to see what’s scheduled during the festival and to download the official brochure.

Best Time to Visit

Tulips are expected to show early color in the first week of April and reach peak bloom in mid-April. Of course this could change depending on weather conditions. The two display gardens have several different varieties planted that will bloom throughout the season. The least crowded times are weekdays or on weekends during early morning (right at opening time) or late afternoon. The gardens are open daily in the month of April from 9am-7pm.

Getting There

The gardens are 60 miles north of Seattle. Use exits 221-231 off I-5. All of these exits have tulip brochures at nearby businesses. The festival is designed as a driving tour. Walking or biking is an option, but keep in mind that events and activities are miles apart

Admission is $7 per person at RoozenGaarde ($6 military with I.D.) and $7 per person at Tulip Town. Children 5 and under are FREE. Parking is FREE. Pets are not permitted.
