Holland comes to Haymarket
Local farm hosts largest Pick Your Own Tulip event in the Country
Haymarket, VA – The beginning of April marks the kick-off of the second annual Festival of Tulips at Burnside Farms in Haymarket, VA. The mother and son team of farm owners, Leslie and Michael Dawley, worked tirelessly through the winter planting 90,000 tulip bulbs in more than 50 different varieties. Their field will soon come alive with a variety of vibrant colors and blossoms that proclaim spring’s arrival.
Late March/Early April when the flowers are in bloom, local residents and tourists alike will be able to stroll through the fields during the three-week Festival of Tulips and pick their own blooms. “Once our tulip field is in bloom, it’s truly a sight to behold,” said Michael Dawley. “Tulips come in so many sizes, shapes and colors and to see them all together truly is an indescribable experience. The Festival of Tulips, offers everyone the chance to take some of that beauty home with them.”
The tulip field is an amazing location for spring photos or a peaceful picnic lunch. Families, schools or groups of all sizes are invited to visit the farm for their first outing of spring. The entry fee for the Festival of Tulips is $3 per person and tulips cost just $1 per stem. Festival timing is dependent on mother nature, it is not possible to give the exact opening date at this time. Typical timing is late March/Early April.
