Annual Tulip Festival
Thursday, April 6, 2017 thru Saturday, April 15, 2017
Throughout Lewes, DE 19958
The Lewes Chamber of Commerce continues its partnership with Lewes in Bloom, The Lewes Historical Society, Lewes Parks & Recreation Commission, the Zwaanendael Museum and the Historic Lewes Farmers Market presents the 8th Annual Lewes Tulip Celebration, blossoming on April 6-15, 2017.
To date, 15,055 tulips have been planted in the City’s parks and other public locations to be identified on the map produced in association with the celebration. More than 100 varieties will be on display. They were all planted by Lewes in Bloom volunteers, an organization of volunteers who promote the beautification of Lewes by planting flowerbeds and planters throughout the City and maintaining them during the entire growing season.
The tulip planting locations as well as Lewes’ historic landmarks will be included on the Tiptoe To The Tulips Map and the Tiptoe To The Tulips Trolley Tours coordinated with the Cape May-Lewes Ferry with docents from the Lewes Historical Society and Warren Golde, founder and past co-chair of Lewes in Bloom. The Tulip Trolley Tours are $10 and reservations can be made by calling the Lewes Chamber of Commerce at 302-645-8073.
