Tulip Fest 2011 at the Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm in Woodburn kicks off Friday, March 25 and runs through Sunday,
May 1 May 8th!
What, exactly, is a tulip fest? On weekdays it’s 40 acres of blooming tulips (and daffodils), a cafe, country store, farm equipment on display, Dutch sausages, and a gift shop. And on weekends you get all that, plus pony rides, a crafters market, Mexican food, wooden shoe making demonstrations, steam tractors, entertainment, and beer and wine!
Heather and I were pleasantly surprised last year at how much fun visiting a tulip farm could be. Check out her review, with lots of colorful photographs, at Mile73.com: Tulip Fest.
Various special events are scheduled on weekends during the festival run. Check out the Field Report for updates on the bloom and field status.
The festival hours are 9am to 6pm daily, and the address is 33814 S. Meridian Rd. in Woodburn, OR 97071 (directions here). Visit the Tulip Fest website for admission prices and additional details.
