Blooming Tulip Festival
For 23 years the Bloomin’ Tulip Festival has made the local town of Wynyard buzz with activities, food, music, artists and festivities. For one Saturday each October the festival committee tempts visitors and locals alike to shake off the doldrums of winter and welcome in spring with joy and colour.
The farm is a central part of the festivities, with thousands of people travelling up the Cape to see the showpiece of the festival… the tulip flower itself. The annual tulip tossing competition is a local tradition, with everyone trying to beat the current distance record, and the festivities culminate with another burst of colour - a fireworks display.
In 2017 the Tulip Farm Open Days will run from 23rd September until 22nd October with the Tulip Festival being held on Saturday 14th October.
