Stay tuned here and on Facebook for updates on Tulip Time 2021.
Pella is beautiful and unique all year long, but at Tulip Time it comes alive with tulips, Dutch attire, food, fun, and more. Thousands of residents wear Dutch attire and celebrate our Dutch heritage. Three days each spring, Pella becomes the Netherlands to Pella residents and visitors alike. Travel back in time with us to a European village full of tulips and excitement.
After cancellation of the festival in 2020 due to COVID, we are excited to invite guests back to Pella on May 6, 7 & 8, 2021 for the 86th annual Tulip Time Festival! Things will look a little different this year in order to keep our guests as safe as possible. This includes spacing out our food stands and vendors, providing enhanced sanitation stations, and encouraging social distancing. While you won't be able to see all of our floats in a parade this year, we are excited to bring new attractions, classic floats on display, and pop-up happenings throughout the three days of the festival.
Explore the tabs under "Pella Tulip Time" to discover exciting events that make this annual festival great. Many of these activities continue year-round.
