Tulip Festival – April 1st- May 5th
The Tulip Festival’s only purpose is to celebrate the beautiful flower that is a Netherland’s symbol dating back to the Ottoman Empire. You will be able to find 500,000 tulips and even rare ones found planted in museum gardens, homes as well as other city buildings throughout the first half of April.

Each year the festival brings more attention to the tulips and more and more tulips are planted for the first time.
