Tulip Festival in Orange City, Iowa

Tulips from Amsterdam

The Orange City (Iowa) Tulip Festival – an entertaining celebration of the best of small-town America – showcases for 100,000 visitors this thriving community's rich Dutch heritage. Festivities include music and dancing by hundreds of children and adults in intricate authentic costumes, two daily parades featuring top area marching bands, nightly musical theater, a carnival midway, fun ethnic food treats, plus  thousands of tulips and a dozen reproduction windmills throughout a charming village.  

Breng ons een bezoek! Come and visit us!


Hi my friends,

We have visited last year Orange City in Iowa, but unfortunately we have missed the legendary beautiful Tulip Festival for some days. We have visited some family members there - of Dutch origin of course! If you get a chance to be in that region, don't miss out that festival, it worth's to see it.

Thank you for all the comments yesterday - the blue color is present also in today's flower of spring, but in a little more abstract version.

See you soon....

How funny. We visited our local tulip festival on Monday. The woman who greated us at the door was Dutch and sounded very much like my mother in law (also Dutch). I got some great pictures!

Thanks for keeping us updated on your travels!
