Help us bring the joy of Tulip Time back to Holland, Michigan in 2021!
The 91st Tulip Time Festival scheduled for May 2–10, 2020 was cancelled to minimize the spread of COVID-19 in West Michigan. While the unprecedented necessity to cancel the festival was important for the safety of our community and guests, we were heartbroken to experience this loss. Now in 2021, we are still in the grips of the pandemic. While the entire 2021 festival is not cancelled, safety measures necessitate the significant curtailing of this year's festival activities including the postponement of all our major events.
We recognize the huge financial impact this creates, not only for our organization, but Holland’s entire travel, leisure and retail industry. Like many impacted by COVID-19, we could not have imagined facing such a financially devastating situation again this year.
We are reaching out to you, our community and all Tulip Time fans, with the hope that you value the tradition of Tulip Time. If you have ever experienced the joy of our festival or hope to attend in the future, we ask you to donate and share this campaign.
STAND WITH US and help make Tulip Time's return in 2022 a reality!
Since 1929, Tulip Time has brought hundreds of thousands of tulip blossoms — and an equal number of Dutch Dancers and tulip-lovers — to the city of Holland, Michigan. Set to breathtaking sights just off the shores of Lake Michigan, our festival celebrates all that Holland has to offer, showcasing stunning tulip displays, honoring Dutch Heritage, and celebrating Holland’s growing community today. For the first time in its 91 years of existence, Tulip Time 2020 had to be completely cancelled. And now in 2021, still under the grip of the pandemic, we must cut back significantly on all of our festival events.
As an open-air festival set in the heart of downtown, Tulip Time is not confined to geographic boundaries and requires no entrance fee. This open-air format allows for community-wide collaboration and encourages spectators to enjoy many free and favorite events like the world-famous Dutch Dancers and some of the largest parades in the state of Michigan. We pride ourselves in collaborating with local businesses and organizations to welcome 500,000 attendees and 48 million dollars in economic impact to the city each year.

A Nonprofit Organization
Many don’t realize that Tulip Time is a 501c3 nonprofit organization, a business entity that operates separately from the City of Holland. We rely on donations, ticket sales, merchandise sales and participation fees to sustain the festival and offset programming expenses.
