Tulip Time Festival

If you’re looking for a beautiful spring destination, think Tulip Time in Holland, Michigan!   The festival began in 1929 when the City of Holland saw its first crop of 100,000 tulips bloom. Since then, Holland has blossomed each spring with millions of tulips. Celebrating their 95th year in 2024,  Tulip Time has grown over the decades to be so much more than a flower festival. Today the splendor continues, with fun events and activities for all ages.
