The Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm has been planting tulips for forty-seven years. On forty acres of land, they grow a variety of tulips and daffodils. The 2021 Tulip Festival will be held from March 19th – May 2nd. In order to go to the festival, tickets must be purchased online. There is a limited number of daily passes, so plan ahead and get the tickets as soon as possible because there is a chance of them selling out. Walking through tulip beds is not the only thing you can do, there are hot air balloon rides, an art marketplace, a country store and food courts. There are many options for food; a recommendation would be the pulled pork sandwiches or homemade donuts. There is an opportunity for wine tasting in the Wooden Shoe Vineyards Tasting Room. At the Tulip Market and Gift Shop, fresh-cut flowers, potted bulbs, t-shirts, and other fun memorabilia are sold. Dogs on leashes and photo-taking are welcome!
