Tulip Festival
 

Signs of Spring

With the caveat of "bloom dates according to Mother Nature", Skagit Valley, Washington invites you to come and revel in the tulips this spring as millions of bulbs burst into bloom. For more than 25 years, the area has welcomed tourists from around the world as they celebrate the arrival of spring with the blooming tulips and the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival.

Skagit Valley is located 60 miles north of Seattle and 70 miles south of Vancouver, BC, Canada. The tulips are generally grown in a 15-mile triangle bordered by Highway 20, the Skagit River, and the Swinomish River Channel. This year's festival runs from April 1 through 30.
