Street Closings

Streets around the town square and in the parade staging areas are closed to vehicle traffic during the festival. Most events and activities at our Tulip Time Festival are within walking distance of a four-block radius of the town square. Moving around is part of the festival. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes!



Limited parking is available downtown or within walking distance. These spots tend to fill up early in the morning. Thank you for abiding by all "no parking" signs!

Parking lots are available from 9:00am to 6:00pm for $10 per vehicle, CASH ONLY. Shuttles take you to downtown Pella and back, running frequently until 10:00pm and included in the price of parking. Note: Not all shuttles are equipped with handicap accessibility and many parking spaces may require significant walking to board the shuttle.​

  • Friday & Saturday: Delta Lot on west side of town, Exit 40 from Hwy 163 - follow signage at Exit 40

  • Saturday Only: Pella Christian High School on the southeast side of town, Exit 44 from Hwy 163 - follow signage at Exit 44

Please be aware that pets are not allowed on most of our shuttles from the parking lots, which means longer wait times for people who are bringing their animals to the festival. Service animals are welcome.

  • Calvary Church at 408 Maple Street - Free parking with shuttle to downtown. Handicapped transport may be available.

Golf cart shuttles are available to transport visitors along a route from the Scholte Church to the Dutch Market from 10am-2pm and 4pm-8pm. Single rides ($2) and day-long passes ($5) may be purchased directly from shuttle cart drivers. Golf carts pick up and drop off passengers at designated sites only.
