La Conner is ready for your Skagit Valley Tulip Festival 2016 visit! Not only because all sorts of tulip festival events, art exhibits and happenings (including the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival 2016 Parade), but also because in March we celebrate the La Conner Daffodil Festival.

Roozengaarde is open all year around
Gift Store Hours: Monday – Saturday 9am – 6pm
