The Thompson Duo at Kuipers Family Farm Tulip Fest 2024

 —  —

Kuipers Family Farm, 1N290 Watson Road , Maple Park, IL

Over the past few years, we have planted nearly 500,000 tulip bulbs across 7 acres of our farm. These beautiful flowers stay dormant all winter and pop up in the spring to bring a vibrant mixture of colors to our farm. Mother nature tells the flowers when to bloom, so keep an eye on our bloom-o-meter to find the perfect time to visit.

The flower fields are fully accessible for strolling and taking those perfect pictures. We know you can’t resist bringing some of that beauty home, so we have specific fields set aside for you to cut and purchase your own tulips.

Not only is the tulip field ready for your visit, but this is also a great time to enjoy the warm weather and outdoor activities! Admission to the Midwest Tulip Fest also includes access to some of our featured attractions on the FunFarm, so be sure to plan for a whole day of fun! On the weekends come enjoy some live music, and grab a bite from one of our food options. For a romantic evening in the tulips, join us for Date Night on the Farm. Live music at the farm during the Tulip Fest! We celebrate our Dutch heritage by bringing the Midwest Tulip Fest to Illinois and we can’t wait to share this breath-taking view with you!

There, guests will be able to sample over 100 premium Bourbons & Whiskies from 40+ distilleries of our Club’s choosing with a heavy focus on Bourbon, all while being swept into a Whiskey drinkin’ atmosphere as we are serenaded by Scottish Bagpipes and Kentucky Bluegrass Bands! Then, multiple Bourbon & Whiskey Pairing Dinner options from local restaurants, followed by lively Saturday Night Parties for Distinguished Hooligans! Sunday-Funday festivities will include numerous Bourbon tastings at local establishments in downtown Lake Geneva. A Whiskey Cocktail Contest will be in order as well from the best watering holes in town, plus an Irish Goodbye Closing Party and much more.
