SKAGIT VALLEY TULIP FESTIVAL: INFORMATION
FOR WASHINGTON REGENCY SOCIETY WILLOWBROOK MANOR TULIP AND TEA EVENT ATTENDEES
The TULIP FIELDS are located throughout the Skagit Valley but primarily around Mt. Vernon and LaConner. There are TWO PRIMARY FARMS which have large tulip fields and related exhibits and operations.
There are TWO other fields which might be a little less busy:
There are charges for tickets to enter each of the tulip farms It is strongly suggested that you pick only one or at most, two gardens if you want to see the exhibition gardens and take pictures in the fields. If you want lots of pictures only one farm is best. Here’s more information about tickets for each farm https://tulipfestival.org/garden-ticketing/. Lovely vistas of fields full of tulips can be had by just driving around the countryside west of Mt Vernon without purchasing a ticket.
On nice spring weekend days the areas around each farm can be crowded with people and cars so leave extra time for finding parking. From the Tulip Festival web-site:
Parking is available at designated lots in the Tulip Field area. There is plenty of parking at Garden Rosalyn, Tulip Town, RoozenGaarde and Tulip Valley Farms and it is FREE. Look for the RoozenGaarde logo for other Official Parking areas. These lots are operated by Washington Bulb Company/RoozenGaarde. Fees are charged to park in official lots — that information will be posted at the fields; the ticket you receive from the parking attendant will also admit one person to RoozenGaarde on the same day. Private individuals sometimes operate their own lots — fees paid to private parties will not work for admission to any of the four gardens.
Roadside parking is limited due to shoulder conditions and traffic safety regulations. Law enforcement officers will issue tickets, so please avoid parking in no parking zones. Parking plans can sometimes be impacted because of the spring rains when they must close lots to keep guests from getting vehicles stuck in the mud.
