This exciting event, known as the “Tulip Garden,” will be open to the public for free from 1 pm to 4:30 pm. These tulips are all American-grown from Dutch bulbs and are part of the American Tulip Day celebration.
Join the Mayor of San Francisco, London Breed, and the President of Anthos, Henk Westerhof, for a special opening ceremony at noon where a tulip will be named after the Mayor. Afterward, visitors can make their way to the colorful garden and pick their own tulips to take home or share with a special woman who has inspired them.
The event is expected to draw a large crowd, so attendees are encouraged to use public transportation and come prepared to wait in line. There will be a special entrance available for visitors with disabilities at the corner of Geary Street and Powell Street.
Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to celebrate women and the arrival of spring with a stunning display of over 80,000 tulips in San Francisco’s Union Square. Access to the garden is free, and so are the tulips, so make sure to save the date and be a part of this unforgettable experience.
