What's Kuipers Family Farm's Midwest Tulip Fest All About?

When most people think of Kuipers Family Farm, they think of all the Fall fun up for grabs, and in recent years, the beautiful Sunflower fest that begins there in August. Now Kuipers Family Farm is kicking off the farm fun early with their first-ever Tulip Fest, which is a cool nod to their Dutch heritage!

Kuipers' website says;

People always ask how “Kuipers” is pronounced, and we’re glad to reply “Kye-pers.” Our last name and family ethnicity is Dutch, and we wanted to bring a touch of that heritage to Illinois. That’s why we’re happy to announce our first annual Midwest Tulip Fest!

Kuipers' Midwest Tulip Fest will feature:

  • Over 300,000 tulips spanning over 5 acres of farmland
  • Walking paths amidst the tulips
  • Specific fields where you can cut your own tulips for an additional fee
  • Food trucks
  • Outdoor attractions for the kids like a jumping pillow, playground, farm animals, and much more!
