The Pacific Northwest is not the Netherlands, however, some local spots can compete with Keukenhoff when tulips are in bloom. The Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm, with a stunning backdrop of Mount Hood, is one of the most popular spring destinations in the state. With beautiful rows of red, pink and purple tulips this festival will be perfect for your Instagram. The festival attracts 100,000 people every year.
With 40 acres of tulip fields, vineyards, and a few muddy puddles, located in Woodburn in the middle of Willamette Valley, The Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival welcomes visitors from late March through late Apri. It offers fresh flowers, snacks photo ops and lots of fun. Daily activities include Wooden Shoe Making Demonstrations, Steam Tractor Demonstrations, and Craft Market Market Place. There is a special kids play area that also features pony rides, jump tents, bungee jumper, a rock wall, and a zip line.
The Wooden Shoe Farm was started by the Iverson family in 1950 when they purchased the land. They began growing tulips in 1974 and continue to do it today. Visitors can buy bulbs and fresh flowers from the farm shop. In other seasons, there is also a Fall Gift Shop, Wine Tasting Room and a summer Event Garden at the Farm.
