Each spring, the Wamego City Park, downtown, and many home gardens throughout town come alive with the vibrant colors of thousands of tulips. Many of the bulbs for these bright, early spring flowers came from Holland and are the backdrop for this April festival. While Mother Nature is not always predictable as to when Wamego’s tulips will bloom, that doesn’t stop us from having a festival!
Please join over 150 craft and artisan vendors for the 27th Annual Tulip Festival in Wamego City Park! A family-friendly and fun atmosphere invites thousands of festival-goers every year. Peruse handmade items such as jewelry, purses, pottery, candles, spices, soaps, clothing, children’s toys, copper art, original art & photography, home décor and re-purposed goods!
Spend the day or weekend at the festival, as we offer a specialty food court with over a dozen food trucks! Funnel cakes, barbeque, stir fry, walking tacos, wood-fired pizza, buffalo burgers and homemade ice cream will be at our Festival, just to name a few!
Kids of all ages will enjoy the Inflatable Bounce House area and Petting Zoo, Climbing Wall, various children’s games, pony rides, petting zoo, as well as learning from the Living Historians and riding on the Wamego City Park Children’s Train! Try your hand at hatchet-throwing at the Tulip Festival! To top off the event, free LIVE entertainment will grace the park all weekend long.
