Holland has great events & festivals year-round. Holland is best known for its annual Tulip Time Festival held each year from the first to the second Saturday in May. The Tulip Time Festival is a celebration of Dutch roots, as well as a celebration of the beauty of the Tulip. The festival originated as a display of 250,000 Tulips in 1930. Today, over six million Tulips are used for the festival. The Tulips are planted all along city streets, municipal buildings, parks, and various tourists attractions throughout the city.
There are also three parades that take place in this week-long celebration. The first, known as Volksparade, begins with townspeople in Dutch costumes washing the street. Thousands of local children participate in the Kinderparade, and the festival wraps up with the popular Muziekparade with bands, floats, antique cars and giant balloons. The Tulip Festival has been named the "Best Small Town Festival" by Reader's Digest and is one of the largest flower festivals in the country.
Other festivals in Holland include Fiesta!, Tulipanes Latino Art & Film Festival, and Dutch WinterFest. Visitors to Holland can also enjoy great downtown events such as Groove Walk, Girlfriend's weekend, the Farmer's Market, the summer Street Performer series and the live mannequin event.
