New! – Welcome to the celebration & experience known as the Tulip Time Festival! Since 1929, the city of Holland, Michigan has blossomed with literally hundreds of thousands of tulips — and an equal number of tulip-loving attendees.
Upon arrival in Holland enjoy a delicious included lunch before making your way to reserved seating in the grandstands for the Volksparade. People from near and far will be invited to don their Dutch costumes, grab a bucket and a broom, and scrub the streets clean for the coming performances. Dozens of bands from West Michigan middle and high schools showcase their talents amid the community floats through downtown Holland. No stop in Holland is complete without a visit to Windmill Island Gardens. Tour De Zwaan, the only authentic Dutch windmill operating in the United States – still turning and grinding wheat into flour! You can also see the stately Friesian horses, a water exhibit and Little Netherlands – a maquette of Dutch life in the 1840s when Holland was settled. Many buildings are replicas of those found in the Netherlands including the ones housing a gift shop where you can pick up an authentic Dutch treat! Of course, the Island wouldn’t be complete without featuring Dutch horticulture and floriculture. Known for a dazzling display of ~150,000 tulips in the spring. Stop at Cracker Barrell on the way home for dinner on your own.
A buffet lunch is included at Boatwerks Restaurant before the festival.
