Shows & Events

Where is the festival?
The Tulip Time Festival does not occur in a gated, single location. Over 8 days, 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 by day. Some do require tickets or registration - click on each of them to learn more and if tickets are required.
Many independent attractions that have tulips and happenings during the week have their own operating hours and ticket requirements. Learn more on the "Tulips" page!
