Pay us a visit!
Each year at Tulip-time it is Orange City’s good fortune and great pleasure to welcome thousands of visitors from near and far. Join us for a day as you recall the gentle charms of the old world and catch a new glimpse of the old Dutch customs.
What began in 1936 as a small celebration of Orange City’s Dutch heritage has led to over 70 years of what is now known as the Tulip Festival. Our annual celebration occurs every third weekend in May.
The internationally recognized Festival features music and dancing by children and adults in authentic Dutch costumes, two daily parades, nightly musical theatre, a carnival midway, Dutch delicacies, delicious food, plus thousands of tulips and a dozen replica windmills throughout this charming village.
So do come; join the tens of thousands of visitors who have discovered the particular pleasure of a festival that is ever-charming and colorful!
