Skagit Valley Tulip Festival 2021
Welcome to La Conner and the 2021 Skagit Valley Tulip Festival! Surrounded by the Salish Sea and farmland filled with tulip and daffodil bulbs, La Conner is ready to welcome you safely. We know things look a lot different this year! Be sure to wear your mask, social distance, and be kind! Keep an eye out for our local Rotary club around town selling bouquets and raising funds for local programs.
Mother Nature decides on the exact dates for tulips to bloom, however, Mid and late March are historically a good time to view the Daffodil Fields and April 7-April 25th has historically been the safest bet to see the most color. Keep an eye on the Bloom Map and follow us on Facebook for updates! The La Conner Daffodil Festival is in March and The Tulip Festival runs the entire month of April. The least amount of traffic is on weekdays early morning and late afternoon. For your visits, we encourage you to stay the night and enjoy the fields in the early morning and late evenings. And be sure to buy your tickets before your visit!

Due to State required COVID mitigation protocols, Tulip Town must restrict the number of guests on the farm at a given time. Tulip Town will be opening earlier and staying open later, as well as switching over to online ticketing to ensure you have the most amazing tulip experience possible!
