With 40 acres of tulips, over 200 acres of outdoor space, and activities, the Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival is identified as one of the top spring attractions in the state of Oregon.
COVID-19 will be the number one priority for our farm in 2021 for the safety of all visitors, employees, and our family. We will follow the State of Oregon guidelines in place. Our guidelines and policies are subject to change as new information becomes available. We recommend that you check for updates before your visit. Any public place where people are present brings an adherent risk of exposure to COVID-19. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, senior citizens and guests with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable. Visit the State of Oregon guidelines and Travel Oregon for up to date information. We have enhanced safety precautions for COVID-19 and have reduced the amount of visitors entering our farm, we feel this price increase is best for the future of our festival.
If you have any questions or concerns please reach out to our farm directly, email@example.com or 503-634-2243. We thank you all for the continued support of our farm and we cannot wait to bring beauty to the Willamette Valley for generations to come.
Prepare for your trip. See below for top Questions & Answers
Friendly dogs are welcome on leashes, we just ask that you clean up after your pet. Many families choose to bring their dog and other animals, so consider if your pet is able to be around others.
Tulips are very sensitive to weather and come up when the ground has defrosted. Some come up early at the end of March while others wait until later in April when the ground is warmer. Generally speaking, mid-April typically has the best overlap of color between the early, mid and late blooming tulips.
The majority of our farm is grass, gravel, and dirt, but we have a paved area near our main building. Full accessibility is often determined by weather, durability of your wheelchair or device, and its ability to navigate grass, gravel, and dirt. The position of our tulip fields rotate annually, differing the length between the tulips and the paved area. We have a tram that goes from the main building and drops off at the tulip field and requires a step to get on-board. Weather permitting, we have a tour train for an additional $10 per person that gives a 30-45-minute drive through the fields, also requiring a step to get on-board.
Our festival hours for 2021 are Monday – Friday, 9am – 6pm, and Saturday – Sunday, 8am – 7pm . If you want to visit outside of those posted hours, we offer a Season Pass that allows entry one hour before sunrise and/or one hour after sunset. Additionally, we offer an early morning sunrise day pass that allows entry an hour before sunrise. Tickets are offered online only here.
For 2021 and to better control the flow of traffic on our farm due to COVID-19, we have switched to online ticketing only. This year, tickets are at high risk of selling out as we will only allow a limited capacity per hour and per day on the farm to follow the State of Oregon guidelines. Plan ahead and purchase your tickets as soon as March 1st to secure your visit to our farm.
A majority of the additional activities on our farm take credit cards. Only limited vendors in our vendor row may take cash only. All food vendors and Wooden Shoe run locations take debit and credit. We offer an ATM onsite for convenience.
We have food options everyday with a few extra vendors on weekends, but families are welcome to use our picnic tables and bring their own food. See our festival activity pages for a list of vendors. We also sell local beer and Wooden Shoe Vineyards wine in our tasting room. If your family has any allergies or food restrictions, we suggest bringing your own picnic.
We are open rain or shine. There are a few of our weather dependent kids’ activities and the hot air balloon flights (see our activities list for more information). Keep in mind that when it rains, you might find yourself dodging more mud puddles, so be sure to come dressed in boots and umbrellas.
All of the bulbs are in the ground and blooming during the tulip festival. You can order your bulbs while you visit for Fall shipping and planting. You can purchase cut flowers, or we have a few potted tulips available to purchase to take home, while supplies last.
Unfortunately, public transportation does not extend as far as our tulip festival outside of Woodburn. We have seen a few large group tour buses come through, but at this time we do not have any tour bus offerings set up through our festival. There is a transit bus from Portland Airport to downtown Woodburn, but we are about 7 miles from downtown Woodburn.
