What I liked
Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival is held each year to celebrate the farm’s world-famous tulips. This event celebrates the arrival of spring and has become a major destination for tourists, photographers, drift hunters and locals alike in Oregon. Day passes cost $15 throughout the week and $20 on the weekend for this year’s event, which runs from March 24 through April 30.
Those who want to make sure they see the tulips at their best can get a festival season pass for $55 that grants them unrestricted entrance to the farm during the festival dates regardless of whether or not the weather cooperates.
What I didn't like
Participants in the annual Tulip Trail Run may visit the farm on March 18. The off-road trail race features 5K, 10K, and a half-marathon courses that travel through the farm’s gorgeous tulip fields.
My overall impression
Have You Heard That This Little Town in Oregon Has One of the Nation’s Finest Tulip Shows?
Woodburn, Oregon, is a small town located in between the two larger cities of Salem and Portland. Located near the northern end of the verdant Willamette Valley, the town of slightly over 26,000 inhabitants has a temperate climate and a lengthy growing season. And while Woodburn has always been a center of agriculture, the town’s tulips—which cover the slopes of a beautiful tulip farm every spring—are perhaps the town’s most well-known export.
The Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm sprawls over 40 acres east of Woodburn – an extent that makes it one of the biggest tulip farms in the Northwest. The picture is beautiful in the spring as row after row of tulips blossom to welcome warmer weather.
