It’s that time of year here in Skagit County where the tulip fields are ready to display the beauty of Spring!
The Skagit Valley Tulip Festival is a premiere destination in the Pacific Northwest for many near and far! The breathtaking display of the RoozenGaarde and Tulip Town show gardens are an explosion of color.
If you are interested in admiring these gorgeous gardens, visit the them soon. This year, tulips bloomed way earlier than expected and forced Tulip town to open last weekend. Yes, in mid March!

From the RoozenGardee Website: As of March 26, 2015 “We have tulips in bloom! Our tulip field at RoozenGaarde (Field 1) is now showing some brilliant and bright colors! Field 2 and Field 3 have also been lit up and are displaying outstanding colors. These fields are nearly in full bloom and we expect the next two weeks or so to be some of the most colorful days of the spring. Plan to be early this year!”
The Skagit Valley Tulip Festival is a great experience that includes beautiful photo opportunities as well as a place where you can order the best bulbs,cut flowers and mementos.
