Skagit Valley Tulip Festival - 2019
Mount Vernon, WA United States
Historically, the tulip was a symbol of paradise on earth!
Come April in the Skagit Valley, we welcome you to our modern day paradise on earth where millions of tulips burst into bloom during The Skagit Valley Tulip Festival. The Skagit Valley Tulip Festival is magic! The Magic Skagit Valley’s natural wonders also include shorelines, bays, islands, mountains, the Skagit River and one of the largest and most diverse agricultural communities west of the Cascade mountain range.
Skagit Valley Farmers invite visitors to take a scenic drive through the valley and experience the art of farming during the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival and throughout the year. Did you know that agriculture is the No. 1 industry in Skagit County? More tulip, iris, and daffodil bulbs are produced here than in any other county in the U.S., and local farmers produce about $261 million worth of 90 different crops, livestock, and dairy products on 93,000 acres of land. In addition to food and fiber products, agriculture in the Skagit Valley provides habitat for thousands of swans, snow geese, and dabbling ducks.
