There’s an unwritten list of attractions that define being an Emerald City local. It starts with the typical tourist haunts: the Space NeedlePike Place MarketKerry Park, and the Fremont Troll. Then, it expands outside the city. Doing the PuyallupBavarian-ing it up in Leavenworthmaking a trip to Mt. Rainier, and, of course, finding all the ways to soak up every second of spring and summer. To help with that last mission, the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival has given locals 41 years of flower fascination.

Welcome to the festival! We’re seeing “full bloom” out there!

Held for the entirety of April, the event is the right spot for a planned or impromptu photo op. It incorporates more than buds with breweries, restaurants, and farms—like this alpaca farm or the art in the pickle barn exhibit at Schuh Farms. The festival is free, but you’ll need a ticket to enter the gardens. Each of the four tulip fields offers distinct experiences, ranging from different tulip varieties, acreage, and even one that offers U-Pick. 

Numerous events are available all month, including the tulip parade (April 6th), the annual photo contest, English tea at Willowbrook Manor, the Kiwanis salmon barbecue, and the downtown Mount Vernon street fair. Visitors can find a full schedule of events online
