Pella is beautiful and unique all year long, but at Tulip Time it comes alive with tulips, Dutch attire, parades, food, fun and more. Thousands of residents wear Dutch attire and celebrate our Dutch heritage. Three days each spring, Pella becomes Holland to Pella residents and visitors alike. Travel back in time with us Thursday, Friday and Saturday, May 1,2 & 3, 2014 to a European village full of windmills, tulips and excitement as we celebrate the 79th anniversary of this colorful festival. Many of these activities continue year-round. Anytime you visit Pella, there are historical sights, ethnic foods, Dutch architecture, great shops, and friendly people. Please visit Pella this year and "Re-discover Iowa's most colorful tradition".
