The festival began in 1929 to beautify the City of Holland with tulips and celebrate Dutch heritage in the community. In 2018, Tulip Time will celebrate its 89th year.
Today the fun continues with three parades, Dutch Dancers, national and local entertainment, dinner shows, a Dutch market, fireworks, and the stars of the show, millions of tulips blooming throughout Holland and along 6 miles of Tulip Lanes.
Tulip Time parades are some of the largest and most spectacular events in Michigan. Thousands of spectators line the streets to watch amazing floats, marching bands, Dutch Dancers and numerous organizations present their finest in over two miles of pure celebration.
One of the most entertaining exhibitions is Dutch Dance. Hundreds of dancers dressed in colorful, authentic costumes and wooden shoes, high-kick their way through traditional dances.
