Just announced! Tulip Festival will be extended through May 5th, 2019.
As we approach another festival, it’s a time we usually pause to reflect on past festivals.
Just like many of our visitors, we have our own favorite memories that include our families and children, many of whom grew up working the festival.
Life is about memories, moments and the simple times we have with family and friends. It is those memories and simple moments on the farm that drive us to continue the Tulip Festival every year. From expansive views of distant mountains to our vineyards, to strolling through rows of tulips in a rainbow of colors, we offer fresh flowers, food and fun for the entire family, rain or shine.
From our family to yours, we invite you to experience the beauty we enjoy in the heart of the Willamette Valley.
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, so consider if they play well with others when deciding to bring your dog.
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, the first few weeks of April have 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 onboard. Weather permitting, we have a tour train for an additional $5 per person that gives a 15-20-minute drive through the fields, also requiring a step to get onboard.
Our festival hours are 9am – 6pm Monday – Thursday and 8am – 7pm Friday – Sunday. 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 pass that allows entry an hour before sunrise. Tickets can be purchased ahead of time or at the gate.
While we do not sell out, we are located on one lane farm roads where traffic often backs up on sunny days and weekends. Our overflow parking on busy days is located on one of our grass fields and may require extra walking. We thank you for your patience on our busy days.
Most of our vendors, gift shop and activities take cards. However, paying in cash speeds up festival entry efforts. Additionally, please note that a few kids activities only accept cash. 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.
Aside from a few of our weather dependent kids’ activities (see our activities list for more information), we are open rain or shine. 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. However, you can pre-order your bulbs 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 the Tulip Festival outside of Woodburn. We have seen a few large group tour buses come through, but we do not at this time 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.
Yes. We encourage you to take pictures, post them online and tag us (@woodenshoefarm on Instagram and @woodenshoetulipfarm on Facebook).
