The annual Orange City Tulip Festival Extravaganza will be held Wednesday, March 17, at Prairie Winds Event Center. The event features a luncheon starting at 11:30 a.m. with the program to follow during which the costumes for the 2021 Tulip Queen and Court are revealed and the 2021 parade marshals will be introduced.
The 2021 Tulip Court will also present their traveling road show for the first time. The road show, which the festival royalty wrote and will present to various organizations, schools, and residential care facilities this spring, tells of the events and attractions at Tulip Festival and gives a detailed overview of their costumes.
Members of the 2021 Tulip Court are Queen Grace Dahl, daughter of Rik and Amy Dahl, court members Elsie Bartels, daughter of Eric and Vanessa Bartels, Laura Beltman, daughter of Daryl and Shirley Beltman, Maci Brenneman, daughter of Patrick and Dana Brenneman, and Lindsey Jacobsma, daughter of Melinda Jacobsma and the late Randy Jacobsma.
An additional highlight will be a “teaser” of the upcoming Tulip Festival Night Show production of Cinderella. The cast has been tirelessly rehearsing the show and some members will be present to share the progress with attendees.
Tickets for the event are limited and a live stream of the event will be available to the general public.
