Through March 26, the American Village is debuting a new seasonal spring event – The Festival of Tulips.

Imagine strolling through over 70,000 blooming tulips with replicas of some of America’s most historic places as a backdrop. The Festival of Tulips is a fantastic outing for clubs, groups, and families. The event is perfect for motorcoach tours as well. The field of over 70,000 tulips creates a one-of-a-kind backdrop for photos. Bring your own camera, or ask about professional photography packages.

As the only you-pick tulip field in the region, visitors can take home armfuls of beautiful blooms!  Stroll through bed after bed of tulips in every color of the rainbow, pick the ones you want to purchase, and package your flowers to take home. Tulips are $1.50 each, bulb included. (The flowers last longer if left on the bulb until you get them home.)

In addition to experiencing the tulips, visitors can take part in Colonial games, encounter patriots of the past, experience the Continental Army encampment, Colonial Chapel, Randall Museum and National Veterans Shrine.

During the Festival of Tulips, we will be open Monday-Friday 10-4, Saturday 10-4, and Sunday 12-4.

Be sure to check the website before your trip, just in case Mother Nature has inclement weather planned.




There is a group discount and catering option for groups of 20 or more that book in advance for a weekday trip. Call Jodie Wasyluka at (205) 665-3535 extension 1045 for more information on group tours.
