Holland America Bulb Farms invites flower fans, wine-lovers, and art afficianados to "Art Among the Tulips," the first-ever Tulip Festival Art Show & Wine Tasting. This event will be held a week before the big annual tulip festival on April 12, 13, 19, and 20, when the tulip blooms are at their peak. Art Among the Tulips is a smaller, more intimate event from 4 to 8 p.m. on one day only. Attendees will be given tickets worth five tastings each, although additional samples will be offered for $3 each. Advance tickets are $15, available online, and tickets at the door are $20.
This is a juried art show, with art and artists selected especially for this event. All art will be on sale, and while you sip wine and enjoy the vivid array of tulip blooms, you can choose from oil and acrylic paintings, drawings, embellished frames, handmade ceramics, artisianal oils and vinegars, handmade jewelry, original photographs and cards, and fused glass dishes. Your browsing and sipping will be accompanied by live music, and food will be available to buy.
