Getting Around at Tulip Time

Looking for lodging? Click here to find a list of options in and around Pella. Rooms fill up quickly, so call early!

Streets around the town square and in the parade staging areas are closed to vehicle traffic during the festival. Most events and activities at our Tulip Time Festival are within walking distance of a four-block radius of the town square. Walking is part of the festival. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes!


Limited parking is available downtown or within walking distance. These spots tend to fill up early in the morning. Thank you for abiding by all "no parking" signs!

Paid parking lots with shuttles to downtown Pella are available for $8 per vehicle. Shuttles run frequently and are included in the price of parking. Lots are located at:

  • 1417 Washington Street; Delta Building A (Use Highway 163 Exit 40 and follow the signs) - Friday and Saturday only

  • 300 Eagle Lane; Pella Christian High School (Use Highway 163 Exit 44 and follow the signs) - Saturday only


Limited handicap parking is available on a first-come, first-served basis at the Pella Public Library parking lot with access from Liberty Street.

Golf cart shuttles are available to transport visitors along a route from the Scholte Church to the Dutch Market. Single rides ($2) and day-long passes ($5) may be purchased directly from shuttle cart drivers. Golf carts pick up and drop off passengers at designated sites only.
