April 1 – 30

A favorite springtime getaway for folks around Puget Sound is the annual Skagit Valley Tulip Festival. This year the festivities will take place April 1-30. At this time of year the fertile Skagit Valley bursts to life in a rainbow of vivid colors as millions of tulips come into bloom.

This is a self-guided driving tour, so you can enjoy the sights at your leisure while touring hundreds of acres of blooms.  This is also the perfect bike outing, as the tulip area is flat as pancake and laced with smooth asphalt roads.  An interactive Festival Map with GPS coordinates is available at The festival’s Facebook page is also a great source of updates.

All month long events—from gallery shows, to concerts to volkswalks and fun runs—are planned to create opportunities for more people to enjoy the blooms.

The nearby city of Mount Vernon joins in the fun with special events and well-known local bistros and shops welcoming tulip fans.  Last year, the festival was enjoyed by visitors from all 50 states and 82 foreign countries. 
This year consider adding your crowd to the list.
