Color fields of blossoming tulips at Tulip Town


April is tulip time in Washington’s Skagit Valley, with events scheduled throughout the month for the annual Skagit Valley Tulip Festival. Two of the largest tulip growers open their farms for visitors, who throng to the fields every weekend. RoozenGaarde¬†and Tulip Town both plant special displays each year which are a visual delight.

The tulips begin blooming in late March and some stay in flower into May, but the middle of April is generally the best time to see the colorful masses of blossoms. The RoozenGaarde website provides a map and bloom update.
