5th Annual Tulipalooza Brings Thousands of Holland Tulips to North Texas While Benefiting Local Charities
Annual tulip festival takes place March 15-March 24, 2024 in Waxahachie TX

Tulipalooza, the annual tulip festival held in Waxahachie, TX, is back and better than ever for its 5th annual celebration. Open daily from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and taking place from March 15th through March 24th, Tulipalooza 2024 invites guests to an enchanting extravaganza of color and floral excellence while directly supporting nearly a dozen local charities.

Tulipalooza was created in 2018 when John Poston, a Waxahachie resident, envisioned building a garden that could serve as a fundraising source for the Daymark Living community and provide socialization skills for its residents. Daymark Living was founded by Poston, and inspired by his desire to create opportunities for his son Michael and others with IDDs. In 2019, Poston Gardens opened and debuted its first tulip festival with the help of the local community and tulip experts from the Netherlands.

Now, every year, in an extraordinary showcase of botanical beauty, Tulipalooza imports hundreds of thousands of tulip bulbs from Holland, which are then planted at Getzendaner Park – 400 South Grand Avenue in Waxahachie, Texas. The tulips are ready to bloom in a stunning array of colors, just in time for Spring. “We take pride in the fact that we collaborate with a local tulip expert, Bill Van Houten, who is actually from Holland, enriching the event with authentic expertise and a touch of Dutch floral heritage,” said Kari Zerbe, a festival organizer for Tulipalooza.

Additionally, guests who attend have the opportunity to be active participants in the local community, as 50% of proceeds from tickets purchased online will be donated directly to 11 local charities. Ticket purchasers can also choose among several charity partners to benefit from their purchase, including:
● To Be Like Me
● Hendrick Scholarship Foundation
● United Way of Ellis County*
● Special Olympics Texas
● YMCA of Waxahachie
● Waxahachie Cares*
● Goodwill of Dallas
● The Heights
● The Ashford Rise School of Dallas
● TouchDown Club of Dallas
● Easterseals Texas

“The festival serves as a splendid occasion for the community to revel in the beauty of nature and celebrate the arrival of Spring while championing the causes of local charities, “ said Zerbe. “We welcome DFW and the broader North Texas community to support this mission and to join us to celebrate the 5th annual Tulipalooza festival in Waxahachie.”

General admission to Tulipalooza is free for children under age 5, $5 for children ages 5-12, and $15 for adults, and $15 for adults. Senior day is Tuesday, March 19th for $12. Throughout the festival, attendees can enjoy beautiful settings for family photos, portraits, and more, along with a variety of food and entertainment options. Tulipalooza will be open daily from 10 A.M to 7 P.M.
