The Iverson Family is pleased to present the 35th annual Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival. An expansive 40 acres of tulips spread out across the east Willamette Valley farm, boasting 120 varieties and a rainbow of colors. People of all ages are invited to enjoy the 2019 Tulip Fest, which runs daily through April 29th.

“We’re excited about this upcoming season,” said Barb Iverson, Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm owner. “We had an extremely cold February and start to March, so full bloom is trending about 3 weeks behind schedule. We hope the sunshine keeps up during March so we have a little color when we open March 23rd. We often get out of town visitors here on Spring Break and we want their experience here as memorable as if we were in full bloom.” (more…)
