Tulip Dig

Grab a potato fork, pitchfork, or shovel and come out for Holland in Bloom's annual Tulip Dig! The dig is scheduled for Saturday, June 4, from 9:00am - Noon. Participants will be able to go to one of three City parks - Window on the Waterfront (6th Street between College and Columbia Avenues), Centennial Park (10th Street between River and Central Avenues), and the tulip field at Windmill Island Gardens (1 Lincoln Avenue. You will be directed where you can dig) - and dig out tulip bulbs for replanting in your own garden. Before digging, all diggers will pay $10 per 5-gallon bucket. ALL buckets must be tagged before digging, no exceptions. Please remember to bring a digging tool and your bucket. NO PRE-REGISTRATION REQUIRED. Choose your park, pay, get your bucket tagged, pick your spot, and dig. All necessary supplies, including the bucket, digging tools, gardening gloves must be supplied by the participants. Cash and checks ONLY will be accepted. Maps are available at the Holland Area Visitors Bureau - in downtown Holland.

Curious how we plant the tulip bulbs?  Many are planted by hand by our park staff and community volunteers. At Windmill Island approximately 55,000 tulip bulbs are planted in the field near the DeZwaan Windmill in just a few hours; check out how it's done in the video below!
