How we got here - In 1991 the Wynyard Tourism and Promotion Association ran the first Tulip Festival in Wynyard, offering a weekend of entertainment, stalls and attractions to promote the area and attract visitors to our town and the North West Coast.From the outset, Wynyard was labeled by news reporters as "Tulip Town" and this has become somewhat of a continuing connection.
By 1997 the Wynyard Tulip Festival had formed a committee in its own right and had taken on an incorporated status, which in 2005 a Special Committee of the Waratah-Wynyard Council. The Festival is now coordinated by a Tulip Festival Project Officer who is employed on a part-time basis by the Waratah-Wynyard Council.
Tulip Festival Wynyard! is a festival of sense stimulating events celebrating the flush of spring colour in the small coastal town of Wynyard on the north west coast of Tasmania. The event is themed Colours of Wynyard to celebrate the spring flowering of the tulips at Van Diemen Quality Bulb Farm on Table Cape.
