90th Anniversary Gala | Saturday, Mar 23 2019

6:30pm – 11:00pm

Tulip Time’s 90th Anniversary Gala benefiting the ‘Join the Dance’ initiative.

The Tulip Time Festival is committed to celebrate our Dutch Heritage, our warm and inviting community and of course, TULIPS! Together, we produce a world-class festival and elevate the experiences of a half million visitors each year. We invite the community to attend the Gala in support of one of our most popular events – Dutch Dance.

Dutch Dance strives to maintain cultural authenticity in the costumes worn by dancers. Each costume is modeled after period dress representing provinces of the Netherlands. Producing a Dutch Dance costume is no small feat! It can take an expert seamstress up to 15 hours to create a full costume—some with as many as eight finished pieces to complete the ensemble—at an average of $300 each costume.

The Gala is designed to create a fund for 200 Dutch Dance costumes and eliminate the cost of costuming as a barrier to participation. Your support will empower local students to Join the Dance.

Guests of the Gala will be treated to an unforgettable evening that will feature cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, an elegant dinner, live music, and extraordinary silent and live auctions.

Please join us for this evening of celebration making it possible for all to Join the Dance!

The Tulip Time Festival is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization.
