Skagit Valley Tulip Festival – Love La Conner

Plan your Skagit Valley Tulip Festival visit!

Every year, hundreds of thousands of people come to the Skagit Valley in April for the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival. As one of the most popular destinations in Washington State, and a beloved month for vacationers in La Conner, visitors enjoy acres and acres of brightly colored tulips, stunning display gardens, and photo opportunities around every corner. Last year people visited from all over the world (over 85 countries!) and from all 50 states! La Conner offers a great showcase of Skagit Valley Tulip Festival events, exhibits, and events for your visit!

Skagit Valley Tulip Bloom Festival Map

One of the most common questions we hear at the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival is, β€œAre the tulips in bloom yet?” Our tulips bloom according to Mother Nature – the buds can start to color as soon as late March, or wait until closer to mid-April. Warm spring weather produces early blooms. Cooler weather means a later season. Once a tulip field begins to color, it usually stays in bloom for about two weeks. Each field is planted with different varieties, which means that not all fields will bloom at the same time.

To get started, check out the Bloom Map that you can refer to as often as you like – it’s updated daily to show you which fields are in bloom during the entire Tulip Festival month.

La Conner Daffodil Festival

Skagit Valley Daffodil Tulip FestivalAlthough tulips are our most popular flower, there’s nothing more stunning than entire fields of bright, cheerful daffodils against the backdrop of Mount Baker during the La Conner Daffodil Festival. It’s beautiful in March with the daffodils in bloom, and there are many fun events and exhibitions in La Conner during March. If you can’t make it to the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival in April, skip the crowds and join us this March for the La Conner Daffodil Festival!
