The Skagit Valley Tulip Festival is a destination event for the Pacific Northwest. Every year the month-long Festival celebrates the beginning of springtime with millions of tulips bursting into bloom. People from all over the world come to see the beautiful Roosengardde and Tulip Town gardens and marvel at the flower fields (just 10 minutes outside the city center of Mount Vernon). The spectacular colored lines light up the beautiful landscape some of which will bloom directly across the street from Christianson’s Nursery this year!
With plentiful parking and the best plant selection in Skagit Valley, Christianson’s Nursery is a highlight for flower enthusiasts and gardeners who love to discover unusual plants and enjoy historical mid-century glass Greenhouses. Be sure to visit Primrose Antiques and Gift Shop, located across the courtyard from the Garden Store, for Spring inspiration such as vintage-inspired Easter basket stuffers, antique treasures, and a wonderful selection of seasonal books, cards and home decor.
For the entire month of April, our original 1888 Meadow Schoolhouse will be transformed into an art gallery as the Stanwood Camano Arts Guild showcases handmade expressions of fine and garden art. Just outside the Schoolhouse, tulip fields, snow geese, daffodils, and Mount Baker all provide a dramatic backdrop for Pat’s Philly Steak Sandwiches and Crepes, while inside the Front Greenhouse, Sweet & Savory Catering will serve fresh ‘pour over’ coffee, tea and hot chocolate from France along with delectable handmade pastries.
Plan to spend an afternoon with us and enjoy a picnic lunch in our charming English-styled Rose Garden as you experience stunning vistas of our beautiful valley. No matter how you choose to experience the Skagit Valley during the Tulip Festival, you are sure to marvel at the beauty!
