The Pella Garden Club will not be selling tulip bulbs in 2020. See you in 2021!

Pella is beautiful and unique all year long, but at Tulip Time it comes alive with tulips, Dutch attire, parades, food, fun, and more. Thousands of residents wear Dutch attire and celebrate our Dutch heritage. Three days each spring, Pella becomes the Netherlands to Pella residents and visitors alike. Travel back in time with us to a European village full of tulips and excitement.

Explore the tabs under "Pella Tulip Time" to discover exciting events that make this annual festival great. Many of these activities continue year-round. Anytime you visit Pella, there are historical sights, ethnic foods, Dutch architecture, great shops, and friendly people. Visit Pella this year to“Re-discover Iowa’s most colorful tradition.”

Having trouble deciding which events you would like to attend?  Take a look at our sample itineraries!  Want to tip-toe through the tulips after a spot of tea?  Look at our "Tulip, Tea & a Shopping Spree" itinerary.   Need to appeal to the grandparents as well as the grandkids?  Check out "The Whole Family" itinerary.  You can narrow down your choices so you can make the most of your visit to Tulip Time.
