All tickets must be purchased online for the 2021 festival. Tickets are not available at the gate. For the most up-to-date information, please visit the Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm website.
The annual bloom of cherry blossoms at downtown Portland’s Waterfront Park is impressive, but an even more colorful burst of flowers appears every spring just 32 miles (51 km) south of the city in Woodburn. There, the Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival blossoms each spring, drawing thousands to come and see acres upon acres of tulips in full bloom.

The owners of the Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm have expanded beyond the beautiful tulips, adding a gift shop, café, and family-friendly fun in the form of a kids’ area (complete with a “cow train” for rides through the flower fields, rubber duck races, and pony rides). In addition to fresh-cut flowers and potted tulips, gardeners can order bulbs for fall planting, and even the most amateur photographers can capture incredible photos – you just can’t go wrong when you get 40 acres (16 ha) of tulips, a windmill, and Mount Hood in the frame. Head to the family farm’s website for a full list of festival activities and offerings.
Daily field reports (complete with photos) highlight conditions (muddy or dry) and bloom updates (early to in full bloom).
