It is that time of year again Skagit Valley’s tulip festival as started. The festival starts April 1st and ends April 30th. However, Mother Nature determines when the tulips bloom. Some years the tulips are blooming the last week of March, other years they may not bloom until the second week of April. The tulip festival is more of a driving tour; there is not a one stop shop. The fields are centrally located in the valley between La Conner and Mount Vernon with events and activities scattered all around Skagit Valley.
“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.” (visitskagitvalley.com)
