Good old fashioned Dutch hospitality
Grab your clogs and head on out to the Tesselaar Tulip Festival this weekend as it transforms into a mini-Holland! Our founders, Cees and Johanna Tesselaar emigrated from The Netherlands on their wedding day, bringing tulip bulbs in their suitcase, and their passion for flowers lives on this weekend.
Enjoy live stage shows throughout the weekend including Dutch music all time favourite tunes. On your visit, be sure not to miss the Tukker's Troupe of traditional Dutch folk dancers, tapping away in their wooden shoes, known as Clogs (11am and 1pm daily). The Memphis Band will keep the music coming all weekend.
