Tulip Fest is May 12 & 13 2012 in Washington Park, Albany, New York

Every year for the past 64 years the city of Albany has celebrated our Dutch heritage through tulip Festival (or as it’s better known Tulip Fest) when there are over 100,000 tulips in bloom throughout Washington Park, many springing from bulbs as old as the city. 


FRIDAY Traditional Dutch street scrubbing and luncheon

SATURDAY Royal Tulip Ball at 6:30P

SATURDAY and SUNDAY music, food, vendors, and more in Washington Park

Tulip Fest is FREE and open to the public (except the post street cleaning luncheon and the Tulip Ball which both have a fee) and for many Albany are families it’s a Mother’s Day tradition. Sunday is also the 14th annual Mother of the Year award.

The City of Albany has some ground rules including no alcohol (you can purchase it in the park), no glass containers, no pets, and some other general event rules.

Check out the City of Albany website for more information about Tulip Festival, the process to select a tulip queen, and more on programs that benefit from the festival.
