Take Home a Free Bouquet at NYC's First-Ever Tulip Day

Over 200,000 tulips are coming to Union Square this spring! Find out when and where to get your free bouquet. 🌷

by New York Bucket List


This spring, Union Square will be transformed into a floral wonderland with over 200,000 colorful tulips. Tulip Day, a longstanding tradition in San Francisco's Union Square, is crossing coasts for the very first time. Visitors to the event can create their own bouquet of tulips to take home—and it's all free!

The one-day-only event will kick off on Sunday, April 7th, and run from 11:30 am to 3:00 pm at Union Square. Attendees can select up to ten tulips to make a bouquet and take with them. While advance reservations for Tulip Day are already sold out, limited walk-ins will be accommodated on the day of the event on a first-come, first-served basis. Admission is free, along with the tulips you take with you.

Tulip Day is part of FUTURE 400, an initiative of the Netherlands Consulate General of New York that aims to honor 400 years of Dutch-New York history with honesty and integrity. The tulips filling Union Square this spring are grown in America from flower bulbs imported from Europe.
