About
Skagit Valley is a popular destination in the early spring, when in late March through April, the acres upon acres of land suddenly burst to life. Boasting tulips of every shade, colour, and variety, its wild parks become the perfect spot to sit and take in the awe and majesty of nature, while its curated private gardens become an oasis of calm and beauty. Visitors from around the world flock to see, photograph, and be photographed with the vistas of flowers, which stretch out as far as the eye can see. They're sure to time their visit: some tulip varieties bloom in March, some in late April, and most blossoms only last for about two weeks. Equipped with a "Bloom Map", they explore the ambling fields and enjoy nature at their own pace.

We had so much fun at the tulip festival! We visited in a small group and went to 2 spots: Tulip Town & Roozengaarde. Of the two we all preferred Roozengaarde - it was much bigger and way less crowded. Both sites were pretty and going first weekend of April we were able to see a decent amount of blooms. We also loved how Roozengaarde had the beautiful mountain backdrop - gorgeous photos!! It was also a great Covid activity and we felt very safe. Definitely wear boots as it was very muddy and don’t forget to buy some fresh blooms on the way out. We loved it!

Amazing tulips display was fantastic. Weather wasn’t great cold and ground mucky from previous rain. Staff friendly and welcoming at gates. We got tickets online and arrived early 9.30-10.00 not too many there. Lots of blooms to see all colours. Lots of photo opportunities. Surprisingly some people ignored the plentiful signs asking not to walk into the fields - I didn’t see staff around fields to ask them not to. By the time we were done and having a coffee there were hundreds more people arriving. Best to arrive early.

Its too early for tulips and feeling overwhelmed by the dire forecasts on the viral dangers of our present situation, we took a few hour drive from Seattle and went to see the daffodils in full bloom. There were some gorgeous fields- and unlike a normal year when things would be crowded, there were only a few people there and we could just gaze at the acres of gold with almost meditative calm. I suppose it is not enough to weigh against the serious health trheat of the moment, but still is was good for the soul and a fairly safe journey to be had. The few people there were respectful of each other's space, and the outing is worth doing.

I love going to take pictures with family. Makes great family portrait background. Check weather before coming since everything is outside and wear comfortable and waterproof shoes!

Staying here was an absolute pleasure. The owner ) was extremely helpful and professional and went out of his way to make us feel welcome. The rooms were excellent and the trace area had . great view of fort and city. The overnight desert safari/camel ride organised from the hotel was also wonderful. Highly recommended.

Speechless. The endless tulip gardens. The joyful colors. The snowy mountains in the background. I understand there’s a million bulbs planted here; tulips, daffodils and some other flowers as well. This is a must visit in one’s lifetime!

My daughter and I flew from California to Seattle to visit the Tulip Festival. We bought timed entrance tickets for two fields. First we visited Tulip Town. Fields were much smaller and the free tractor ride they provided around a portion of the field kicked up so much dust that nearby tulips were caked in dirt and not as photogenic. The next day we visited Roozengarde fields and this visit was so much nicer. There were extensive well planted fields with all the colors you can imagine. Roozengarde provided field cut outs so that you could get a great photo without destroying the flowers. The photo ops were nicely curated. If I return, I would only attend Roozengarde. We visited April 19 and 20 and that was the perfect time.

I've visited this festival about 3 times already and I always loved it. It was breathtaking and beautiful. The blooming fields were truly mesmerizing.Important thing to check before you visit is the bloom time because tulips doesn't have a fixed date of bloom. It depends on mother nature. If the weather is warm, they bloom sooner than later. Check the farm website before visiting to make the experience worth while. Another tip where a shoes that you don't mind getting muddy so that you can enjoy the experience of walking around without worrying of your shoes getting dirty. The Tulip Town Tulip Festival in Skagit Valley is a huge far, they have concession stands, small souvenir shops, kiosk to buy fresh tulips and some painting displays. parking could be though during peak season, which is normally (but not fixed date) around 2nd week of April to first week of May (plus or minus 1 week depending on the weather).
So my verdict, YES it's worth it, it's a truly nature lovers paradise.

Festival is loosely used. You need to drive a lot to each garden/tulip farm. We went on a Monday and the ‘salmon bbq’ was a let down. Each farm/garden charges a admission fee and the other ‘gardens’ on the tulip festival pamphlet are not what they seem. Prepare to spend an entire day trying to see the sites. I would not recommend for families with really young children, unless you want cute photos with baby and tulips. Other than that this appears to be the ‘off’ season for Fir Island and Mount Vernon. I would not do this activity again without other plans in the area.

We visited Skagit during the 1st week of April. The yellow daffodil's were almost end of life but the tulips were in full bloom. I recommend to wear warm clothing and rain boots since the farm is very muddy, we saw some people got stuck in the mud. Since its the peak season there were lots of crowd and it was tough to get a spot to click pictures without someone photo-bombing hahaha! I would recommend to carry water and some food as well. Try to reach as soon as the farm opens since it gets really crowded later in the day. I think we paid for the parking. Overall its beautiful and worth the visit.
