Free Tulips during TulipMania! at Garfield Park Conservatory

Free Tulips during TulipMania! at Garfield Park Conservatory

 

Every spring, the City of Chicago and Chicago Park District pull all of the tulips from downtown and Chicago parks to replace them with warmer season plantings. TulipMania, held this Saturday, April 28, is an event that recycles these bulbs so they can be distributed to the public for free.

Tulip bulbs are given on a first come, first served basis. They go fast, and the line begins to form early. Typically each visitor will get one or two bags packed with tulip bulbs (they will be pre-bagged). Please note that the gate will be opening an hour earlier than usual this year. The tulip bulbs are typically gone one to two hours after the gate opens.

Also happening at the Garfield Park Conservatory on April 28th is the 20th Annual Green and Growing Fair from 11 a.m. - 4 p.m., so guests are encouraged to stay afterwards to prepare yourself for the upcoming growing season.
For more information, visit Garfield Park Conservatory.

Hours: Gate opens at 8:00am (be sure to get there early!)

Cost: Free

Health Screenings: A Great First Step Toward Creating a Corporate Wellness Program
