April 1 – 30, 2021
Bloom updates (according to Mother Nature) found at TulipFestival.org
We are welcoming spring and the fabulous rainbow of tulip color this year! Last year, the daffodils and tulips still bloomed despite COVID-19 and we move forward this year with a little more awareness regarding our current Phase 2. To have a safe, enjoyable experience, we suggest reading our FAQs as well as the Tulip Festival’s COVID-19 page (above).
Enjoy the Gardens!
They both charge admission, have free parking, and acres of tulips to experience.
Enjoy the Fields!
MARCH 1 – 30: Daffodils have already begun to send tender green shoots through the dark brown nutrient-dense Skagit soil, mainly in varieties of Dutch Master, Flower Carpet, and Standard Value – all hardy and proven varieties for the Pacific Northwest. La Conner hosts the 7th annual Daffodil Festival which celebrates these sunny harbingers of spring alongside the north/south waterside dock against the uniquely Skagit-lit blue skies against Mt. Baker’s backdrop. If you want to support small businesses, this is the town for you! Both Morris and First Streets are studded with hand-curated, interesting stores that keep innovating themselves and pivoting throughout the pandemic.
APRIL 1 – 30: Tulips bloom throughout April and depending on the weather. Regardless, people visit early to see both the earlier blooming daffodils and tulips. We are delighted to re-open Art in the Schoolhouse beginning April 1 – May 2, 2021, 10:00 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Camano/Stanwood Arts Guild artists have been producing beautiful works of art throughout the pandemic and are extremely excited to share their creations this spring.
Although the Bloom Map is a buzzword throughout Skagit Valley, it may be new to you! Roozengaarde turns their map “on” once daffodils and tulips begin to bloom and “show color.” This is a great resource to refer to before you schedule a visit to Mount Vernon.
