• Update on 2021 Skagit Valley Tulip Festival

    February 16, 2021
    The 2021 Festival is going forward and scheduled for April 1- 30. There will be events and activities planned for both live and virtual. Please see this digital copy of the brochure. (Also available in print at the Burlington Vistors Center!) 

    Although it is not yet known how COVID regulations will impact the venues and admissions to the fields of Tulips, the owners of both RoozenGaarde and Tulip Town are committed to being open and admitting as many people as possible under whatever COVID regulations that are in place at the time. It has been encouraging to see the success of outdoor harvest/ag-related venues that operated in the fall of 2020 and the farmers markets that operated last year as well.

    The Skagit Valley Tulip Festival has a couple of opportunities for businesses/organizations to help support them this year: 

    The Gala
    The Gala will be a virtual event this year happening on Thursday, April 1, at 6 PM. It will feature entertainment, dinner and a silent auction, plus some fun and awards thrown in for good measure. The proceeds from the dinner and auction will go towards funding festival operations. You can help out by promoting the event!

    The Tulip Parade
    This will be a community effort, please consider participating! The Skagit Valley Tulip Festival will be inviting businesses and organizations to decorate their establishment in a tulip theme and enter the parade – the locations (along with a picture of the business) will be included on our interactive map and we will publish a list to encourage the public to go by and see each business and vote on their favorites. Prizes will be awarded! In addition, people who have plated tulips in their yards are invited to join the parade! Individuals will be given the option to have their address published or to remain a virtual entry. Prizes will be awarded for these entries as well. Here is the Registration Form to enter the parade, you can also find it on the Tulip Festival website.
