We would like to announce that our upcoming tulip festival will have some major changes due to the concerns of the COVID-19 virus. As of right now we are cancelling the 2020 festival and activities associated with the festival. Our fields are also closed during this time.  

If you have any questions and concerns please reach out to our farm directly. office@woodenshoe.com or 503-634-2243

Prepare for your trip. See below for top Questions & Answers

Can I bring my dog?

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.

When is the best time of the season to come?

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.

Is the festival handicap accessible?

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 $8 per person that gives a 30-45-minute drive through the fields, also requiring a step to get on-board.

Do you allow sunrise and/or sunset pictures?

Festival cancelled for 2020 Season- Our festival hours are 9am – 6pm Monday – Friday and 8am – 7pm Saturday – 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.

Do your tickets sell out?

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.

Is it a cash only event?

Most of our vendors, gift shop and activities take credit cards. Paying in cash can speed up festival entry efforts. Additionally, please note that a few kids activities only accept cash. We offer an ATM onsite for convenience.

Do you sell food onsite?

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.

Do you close for rain?

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.

Can I buy bulbs when I am there?

All of the bulbs are in the ground and blooming during the Tulip Festival. 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.

Is there public transportation?

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.

Can I take pictures?

Yes. We encourage you to take pictures, post them online and tag us (@woodenshoefarm on Instagram and @woodenshoetulipfarm on Facebook). If you are taking pictures for a business and intend to sell them, we ask that you mention where the pictures were taken: Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm. Please email us at office@woodenshoe.com if you need a signed release form filled out.
