Delight in every colour of the rainbow at the 64th Tesselaar Tulip Festival

Thursday September 14 – Tuesday October 10, 2017

Follow the yellow brick road through 25 acres of gardens and enjoy a spectacular display of more than 900,000 flowering tulips, showcasing 130 different varieties.

While the tulips are undoubtedly the stars of the show, visitors will discover so much more from children’s activities, live entertainment, delicious local food, beer and wine and market stalls every day.

Running over four weeks, the Tesselaar Tulip Festival opens with a burst of colour and excitement for the Turkish weekend (Sept 15 – 17). Celebrating the origins of the tulip there will be exciting Turkish performers, music, folk dancing, belly dancers, cultural and artistic displays as well as a selection of delicious Turkish food.

Rejoice in the spectrum of colour during Over the Rainbow week (Sept 18-21). Visitors can join Dorothy, Scarecrow, Tin Man and Lion as they journey through the magical land of Oz in twice daily performances of THE Wizard of Oz.

Put a spring in your step with all day music and live entertainment during the Dutch weekend (Sept 22-24) with Tukkers Clog Dancers, live bands, tempting Dutch foods, activities, games and market stalls. Keep an eye out for some magical ruby clogs on your travels.

The Children’s Get Active week (Sept 25 – 28) kick starts the school holidays with the ever lovable Peppa Pig and her little brother George daily on the Main Stage. In addition, dance with Ruby Ray and the Funky Monkeys, participate in African drumming and hula hoop workshops, play with animals in the petting zoo or make a trip to fairy hollow.

Escape the everyday on the Food, Wine and Jazz weekend (Sept 29 – Oct 1). Enjoy food from around the world, teamed with award winning local beer and wine, all set to the cool sounds of jazz.

Which week will you attend? They all sound so amazing it's impossible to choose!
