Shows & Events

Where is the festival?
The Tulip Time Festival does not occur in a gated, single location. Over 8 days in May, events and activities take place in different locations, most within a 4-mile radius of Downtown Holland. Tulips can be seen for no charge in public parks and along downtown streets.

Where to get tickets:
No tickets are needed to visit Holland, explore and experience the area. Specific Tulip Time events and activities are listed below and you can find ticket details about each one by clicking on the images. No dogs are allowed at ticketed events and venues.

Many independent attractions have tulips and happenings during the week of the festival and beyond. They have their own operating hours and ticket requirements. Learn more on the Area Attractions page!
