We recommend on planning at least 1.5-2 hours to experience the Tulip Festival.

Each year our Ashton Gardens Designers create a new Tulip Festival design, which makes each year’s Festival wonderfully unique. Because of this, the tulip bulbs from this year’s Festival will be dug up from the gardens to make room for next year’s tulip bulbs.

After the tulip bulbs are removed from the flower beds, they are available for purchase from the Ashton Gardens. The Tulip Bulb Sale begins at the end of May, but specific information will be posted HERE once it's available. You can use them to plant in your own garden, or they make great gifts for friends who would love to plant a piece of the Tulip Festival in their own yards!
