The Tulip Festival of Skagit Valley

The Tulip Festival of Skagit County is a must see event for the whole family.  Hundreds of Thousands of people come from around the country to be amazed by the beautiful burst of color from the millions of Tulip blooms.

While there is no way to know exactly what day the tulips will blossom the event starts on April 1st and goes until April 30th.

The festival is designed as a driving tour and there is not a single point of entry. The fields of tulips are scattered throughout the Skagit Valley as are the many events and activities that make up the festival.

And there are a ton of events in April focused around the Tulips blooming.
