US (NY): 200,000 tulips are taking over Union Square

1 Min Read

Whether it’s the lack of puffer jackets visible on the subway or the emerging cherry blossoms all throughout the city, there are signs everywhere that we’ve finally officially entered Spring. Nothing embodies our warmer weather mood better than tulips, and Union Square is about to bring us the most incredible display of the flowers that most of us on this side of the Atlantic have ever seen.

So if you find yourself at Union Square on Sunday, April 7, between 11:30 am and 3 pm and feel like you’ve been teleported to the Netherlands, we won’t blame you, considering there will be a staggering 200,000 tulips on display for the city’s first-ever Tulip Day. The best part? You’ll get the chance to pick a bouquet of ten tulips of your choice for free.

This event is the work of Royal Anthos, an organization that represents Dutch companies that trade in flower bulbs, and the Consulate General of the Netherlands. Tulip Day has been celebrated in San Francisco in the past, and the event organizers hope to make this an annual New York City tradition.
