Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival
All Ages
More info: woodenshoe.com

The tulips are ready to share their beauty with visitors from around the world when the 34th annual Wooden Shoe Tulip Fest opens on Friday, March 23. An expansive 40 acres of tulips and daffodils in nearly 120 varieties and every color are the backdrop to activities that engage people of all ages. The 2018 Tulip Fest is open daily through April 30.

“We are ready to see people fill the farm, rain or shine,” said Barb Iverson, Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm owner. “New activities are lined up, along with some traditional favorites so that everyone leaves the farm with some new cheerful memories.”

Photographers Delight

Professional photographers and scrapbook aficionados alike will have endless opportunities for creating terrific pictures. Iconic landmarks including the Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm’s windmill and pink tractor are great for any backdrop, with Mt. Hood an extraordinary addition – especially in the early-morning or early evening light.

Feed Your Feed

Instagram and social media enthusiasts will find a great way to brighten up social media feeds with multicolored tulips.The Wooden Shoe Tulip farm has these recommendations for making the best images with your phone:

  • For photos of the field, look for color combos, find an object or flower to focus on such as the windmill, a hot air ballon, Mt. Hood, etc.;
  • Find lighting to make the color or flower pop;
  • Be unique, and don’t be afraid to get muddy;
  • For dogs just think action shots, tongue, put them in objects in front of the flowers!

Visitors are encouraged to join the conversation with the hollowing hashtags: #woodenshoetulipfarm, #tulipfest2018, and #woodenshoefarm.
