At the end of May each year, always the Saturday morning of Memorial Day weekend starting at 7:00 AM, that year’s tulip bulbs are available to be dug up and purchased for 30 cents per bulb. Visitors bring their maps and target their favorite tulip variety for harvesting and then planting in the Fall at their own homes or to give as house warming and other gifts.
Participants should bring gloves a pitchfork or spade and containers to take home their bulbs. Pre-dug bagged bulbs are also available.
The funds raised at the Tulip Dig are then used to buy new bulbs which are planted each October to provide the next year’s different and vibrant tulip bloom display.
