2018 marks the 35th anniversary of the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival. Over one million bulbs are planted and are visible for the month of April. The fields are breathtaking! The Tulip Festival is a very popular tourist attraction and it is loved by the locals, too. It is a driving style tour - but the fun doesn’t stop there. Indulge in wine, food and music. If that’s not your thing, there is a street fair, 5k, or 60 mile bike ride. Events start on April 1st, 2018. Be there on a weekday before 10:00 am to beat the crowds!
Address is: 311 W. Kincaid St. Mt. Vernon, WA 98273
