Tulip Festival Signals Spring

35th Annual Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival in 2019 has concluded. Come back to visit in Spring 2020!


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. 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, 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 shop their online catalog once you are back home. 

Mark your calendars and head to the festival to experience this amazing scene for yourself, taking place March 23 through May 5 this year. Weekends have become incredibly popular, so I encourage you to follow my lead and visit during the week for smaller crowds and better photo taking opportunities. Utilize the helpful links below to plan ahead for the best experience for your group. 

*Daily Mid-Week Activities: Enjoy the glorious tulip fields and beds, gardens, tram and hay wagon rides, children's play area, cow train, field train, onsite food and coffee, vineyard tasting room, some craft market vendors, tulip market and greenhouse.
