After another successful festival this year, we are again reminded of the heritage of volunteerism and participation that is alive in our community. It is a gift to gather and celebrate our cherished history and heritage and the vibrant community we live in today. 

At this time, the festival steering committee is already hard at work planning for our 2025 Tulip Festival scheduled for May 15-17, 2025. We kindly ask for your continued support of the Friends of the Festival Foundation to help us fund some new endeavors. The focus of our fundraising efforts for this year includes:

  • We are seeking your support to help us create a memorable and spectacular new float for the Volksparade parade. Our parade floats are an integral part of the parade, which is a cherished tradition in our community, drawing thousands of spectators from near and far. It is an opportunity for our volunteers to showcase their creativity, community spirit, and commitment to making our town a vibrant place to live and visit. Our floats are intended to reflect the essence of our community and celebrate our town’s unique heritage. With your generous support, we aim to build a visually stunning and engaging float.
  • Multi-year project of sending our costume committee to the Netherlands for a scouting trip. The last time we sent this volunteer group to investigate costume design and materials was in 2009. We want to explore new options and enhance old contacts to keep our costumes as authentic as possible. 

Please consider making a tax-deductible, year-end gift to the Friends of the Festival Foundation in support of these projects. With a minimum contribution of $100, you will receive “early access” to be able to purchase and reserve seating for the 2025 Night Show production of The Wizard of OZ!, starting December 1, 2024.  Public ticket sales begin on January 13, 2025.

Thank you for considering a gift and for your continued support of the Orange City Tulip Festival!
