Orange City, Iowa - Dutch-crazy Tulip Festival

Unlike the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival that we went to in Washington about 9 years ago, this festival did not have fields of tulips. Instead, the town had many gardens, public and private, filled with these flowers. It seemed like most of the residents of the town were in Dutch garb. It was very exciting to see the involvement of so many people; the town truly seemed to enjoy sharing their appreciation of their heritage. There is a parade, carnival, and food and craft booths. Pella, Iowa is better known, but this festival is great, especially if you are closer to the northwestern part of Iowa.

Dutch-American towns can never host enough tulip festivals. But we prefer the crazed antics of Holland, Michigan, with their lockstep legion of wooden-shoed Klompen Dancers.

Orange City Chamber of Commerce, 509 8th St. SE, PO Box 36
2nd or 3rd weekend in May. (Call to verify)
