Tulip Fest 2024

Thank you for joining us for our 2024 Tulip Fest. We are planting bulbs in the fall for next year's tulip cutting. More information coming Spring 2025!

What is Tulip Fest?

A gorgeous, fan-favorite variety of 100k tulips are scheduled to bloom in early May. Welcome spring with this multi-weekend festival featuring free live music, self-guided blooming orchard walks, outdoor hard cider bars, food trucks, fitness n' family activities and pick-your-tulips. General entrance is free but online tickets for tulip picking is required. Walk-in tickets will not be sold upon arrival on the farm.

What are the dates for Tulip Fest 2025?

More information coming Spring 2025.

Do I need to purchase tickets in advance or may I just arrive at the farm to cut tulips?

Pre-purchased tickets are required for cut-your-own tulips. While we offer walk-in tickets on the farm for all other crops, tulips are the only crop where online pre-purchased tickets are required allowing for best possible guest experience. 


How do I purchase tickets?

Expect tickets to become available late-April through mid-May on this page as we monitor the weather and tulip field. Again, you will find those tickets here. When you do book, select your date carefully. Tickets are non-refundable and non-transferable. Rain or shine unless we close the field per inclement weather. Ticket time options allow for a flexible 2 hour windows beginning at 8 am. We do anticipate tickets selling out so please stay close on Instagram, Facebook or join our newsletter for up-to-the minute updates.

When will tickets go live?

More information coming Spring 2025.

How much are cut-your-own tulip tickets?

All tickets are pre-purchase only. Ages 3+ require a ticket.

  • Cut-your-own tulip ticket - $22 per dozen and allows tulip field entrance for up to 2 people 

  • Non-cutting ticket - $6 per person for those that want to enter the field but don't want to pick

*Tickets are not required to enjoy the rest of the festival happenings or to view the garden from outside the fenced field. Pricing and details subject to change.

How long will tulip picking last?

Depending on spring conditions, we anticipate tulip picking will begin the first week of May and go through mid-May. Stay close! 


May I keep the tulips bulbs?

This is a cut-your-own event and not a pick/pull event. Clippers will be provided upon arrival. Please do not pull bulbs. It damages nearby blooms. 

May I book a mini-session in the tulip field?

For those who wish to capture images of spring blooms for personal or business uses, you may use the spaces surrounding the garden at no cost. Decorative flower beds will also have beautiful varieties of tulips to enjoy at no cost. For those that wish to enter the field even for just photos, tickets are required. The non-picking $6/person ticket is a great option. If you are looking for a private experience, we encourage you to come at the end of the day closer to 3-4 pm when fewer people are in the field. Fields do close promptly at 5 pm.
