Join the hundreds of thousands of visitors from all over the world during Holland’s Tulip Time Festival
May 6-14, 2017. Named “Best Small Town Festival" and 2016 Best Flower Festival, Tulip Time has delighted visitors for over 80 years!
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.
This year the Tulip Time Festival will once again celebrate Holland’s Dutch heritage with a week 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!
