Kuipers Family Farm debuts inaugural Tulip Fest in Maple Park

Kuipers Family Farm is a riot of color this week at its inaugural Midwest Tulip Fest, which opened last weekend.

According to the Maple Park farm’s website, staff planted 300,000 tulip bulbs in over 30 varieties in November across five acres at 1N318 Watson Road.

The flower fields are fully accessible for visitors to stroll through and take pictures. Specific fields have been set aside for visitors to cut their own tulips for an additional fee. Open daily, the festival will feature family-friendly outdoor activities, including a jumping pillow, as well as live music, food trucks and other fare on weekends.
