Midwest Tulip Fest NOW OPEN!
Last day for Festival Friday, May 20th
Tulip Update: Posted May 18th
This cooler weather has been a joy for people coming to the tulip field! Its much nicer out this week!
As we approach the end of the tulip festival many people have been wondering about this upcoming weekend (5/21-5/22). We are sad to announce that we will NOT be open this weekend. The hot weather we had last week advanced the flowers too far, and with two more warm days on Thursday-Friday, we don’t expect the fields to look good enough for the weekend.
With that said, we will be open today through Friday, 5/20! There is still plenty of color in the field, and many beautiful tulips at their peak bloom to be picked for a vase! If you’ve already purchased weekend tickets they will be honored this week, so come on out! Our weekday hours are 11am-6pm!
It is still very much worth the trip out this week if you haven’t come yet! Come grab some photos and a beautiful bouquet at the Midwest Tulip Fest.
Fest End Date:
Friday May 20th
People always ask how “Kuipers” is pronounced, and we’re glad to reply “Kye-pers.” Our last name and family ethnicity is Dutch, and we wanted to bring a touch of that heritage to Illinois. That’s why we’re happy to announce our first annual Midwest Tulip Fest!
In November 2021 we planted 300,000 tulip bulbs across 5 acres. These beautiful flowers have been dormant all winter and will be popping up this Spring to bring an amazing mixture of color to our farm. We can’t wait to share them with you!
The flower fields will be fully accessible for strolling through and taking those perfect pictures. For those who want to bring some of that beauty home, we will have specific fields set aside for you to cut your own tulips for an additional fee.
Not only will the tulip field be open, but we figured it would be a great time to offer some outdoor activities to enjoy in the warm weather! Admission to the Midwest Tulip Fest will also include access to some of our feature attractions on the FunFarm, so be sure to plan for a whole afternoon of fun! The Jumping Pillow is free on weekdays. Purchase a $2 wristband on the weekends for all day Jumping Pillow access. On the weekends come enjoy some great live music, and grab a bite at one of our food locations or a delicious food truck.
