Walk through Tullips with Umbrella at Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival in Oregons Mount Hood Territory.

The Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival signals the arrival of spring in Oregon's Mt. Hood Territory. I know because my news feed fills up with gorgeous photos of friends and family in front of tulips, tractors and on a clear day, Mt. Hood in the background....which makes my heart happy. The festival is the annual event put on by the family-owned Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm, and owner Barb Iverson continues to up the ante each year with their offerings, so the fun is always growing as fast as the flowers.

The festival offers endless rows of tulips in numerous varieties and colors over its 40 acres of dream-like beauty. Plus an abundance of fun activities like hay-wagon rides, a children’s play area, photo cut-out boards, hot air balloon rides, Cow Train, Tour Train, food carts and the Tulip Market. The large gift shop has numerous souvenirs and a large assortment of tulip bulbs for you to plant in your own yard. If you can’t decide while at the festival, you can grab the printed 2018 Bulb Catalog and decide once you’re back home. Make a day of it by bringing a blanket and picnic basket to enjoy lunch in the gardens or purchase a Mt. Angel Sausage and Wooden Shoe label wine to enjoy in the fields. (Hint: get a wine sippy cup from the gift shop to sip your wine without spill while navigating through the fields).

I recommend you head to the Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival this year taking place March 23 through May 6 and snap a picture as you experience this amazing scene for yourself. Weekends have become incredibly popular, so I encourage you to follow my lead and visit during the week for smaller crowds. The photogenic fields and vineyard are a wonderful place for a family and friend get-together or a romantic stroll with your sweetie. No matter rain or shine, the colors are always awe-inspiring and the atmosphere is inspirational. To check the most up-to-date conditions specific to the farm, refer to their Field Report page and save the link to check back for new information.
