2012 Skagit Valley Tulip Festival


The 2012 Skagit Valley Tulip festival begins April 1st !

 The Skagit Valley Tulip Festival is one of the destination events for the Pacific Northwest, held each year from April 1-30. Every spring hundreds of thousands of people come to enjoy the celebration of spring as millions of tulips burst into bloom. As with all things governed by Mother Nature, the tulips bloom according to their own schedule sometime during the festival. The tulips allow Skagit Valley to share their corner of the world and help us to showcase Skagit Valley agriculture.

The festival is designed as a driving tour for the visitor as there is no one “site” that you go to for your visit. This is because the farmers in the valley raise tulips as an agricultural crop and the 100s of acres of blooming flowers are scattered throughout the Skagit Valley. In addition to the flowers, festival visitors enjoy taking in one of the many events and activities that happen only during April. These too are scattered throughout the Skagit Valley.
