Visitors seeking to experience the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival now have a new field and garden to enjoy and brand new ways to interact and connect with the magic of nature’s gift.
Tulip Valley Farms debuts this spring, offering visitors two new fields and many ways to experience the region’s tulip bloom. Located in the heart of Skagit Valley, Tulip Valley Farms is a collective of new farms and gardens, including an expansive 30-acre farm with views of Mount Baker and beautiful surrounding farmland.
The farm features 12 acres of tulips among hazelnut trees and between grass rows for a spacious park-like feel. Tulip Valley Farms is also introducing Tulip Valley Gardens, a 9-acre farm with 2 acres of tulips right off of I-5 designed to provide a “taste” of the tulips, intimate events, and programs, minus the traffic.
Tulip Valley Farm and Tulip Valley Gardens will open April 1, bloom-pending, for the entire month giving locals and visitors many ways to enjoy the magic of mother nature and our rural, agricultural communities. Tickets are on sale now.
I wanted to create a space where individuality and community come together to create a living masterpiece of tulip bloom and creative abundance. We developed new and innovative ways to attract more people to the region to celebrate this time of year with us, supporting our community of businesses and growers, and making it accessible to people who wouldn’t come because of traffic, perceived fit, or having enough reasons to make the trip. I had a vision for a ‘Magic Springdom,’ and that’s what we created. ~Andrew Miller, CEO of Tulip Valley Farms.
This season, a special Ethan’s Smile tulip bulb mix will also be available for purchase and for viewing to honor Ethan Chapin, the friend and former team member who was tragically taken from us last November while attending the University of Idaho. Ethan was a beloved citizen of Conway and Mount Vernon, who worked, along with his friends, in the fields that make Skagit Valley so spectacular. All proceeds will go to Ethan’s family and building community gardens in memoriam.
