Tulip Festival at Stevens Coolidge Estate

Get ready for tulips, tours and tinkering because it’s time for the Stevens-Coolidge Place’s annual Tulip Festival! Begin your day with a tour of this historic estate, followed by some friendly competition at corn hole, tip toe through the tulips with a guided tour and end the afternoon with a picnic on the lawn or make a flower sun catcher to bring home. Welcome spring!

Curious to see the full house? Join us for full house tours being offered every half hour from 10am to 2pm on a first come, first serve basis. Inside you’ll find a two-story mural of the gardens, artifacts from around the world and of course the story of Helen and John Coolidge as they transformed this once working family farm into a gentleman's summer estate to escape the hustle and bustle of busy city life.

Guided tours of the gardens are also available at no additional fee and will leave from the back patio at 10:30am and 12:30pm. What better way to celebrate the arrival of the friendly tulip, than with a knowledgeable horticulturalist?

Bring the whole family and enjoy making flower sun catchers with the kiddos and reading stories in the cozy nook of a tree. Throughout the day, the gardens and grounds are open for exploring. Play lawn games set up around the property. Borrow a blanket to lounge under a tree and get lost in the colorful world of our multiple manicured gardens or share a picnic with friends.

And of course, no trip would be complete without a trip to the greenhouse to see what seasonal goodies are for sale to add to your garden. Special arrangements will be available today in preparation for Mother’s Day.
