2016 Wooden Shoe Tulip Fest Photo Contest


The Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm is proud to present the 2nd annual Wooden Shoe photo contest. We have been blessed with an amazing setting for photos and some of the best ones we see come from our guests. With that in mind, we took a look at some of the subjects that have been repeatedly photographed and sent to us by our guests.

Here are the details on the Wooden Shoe Tulip Fest Photo Contest:


Families: We believe Family is one of the most important things in life. So much so that we are making Family photos one of our Wooden Shoe Photo Contest categories. Be creative and have fun.

Everything: Everything category means just that…every subject that is captured on camera located over the entire farm is eligible. This is going to be fun, so make sure you look through all your photos taken at the Festival this year

Pets: Pets are welcome here at the Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm during the Festival. We have also included them in our photo contest. We have had some pretty amazing photos with pets and now it is your chance to photograph your pet too. Please make sure all dogs are well mannered and on leash. We have doggie stations at the Festival.
