Tulip Time announces entertainment, exhibits for 2023

Visitors kneel to take photos of the tulips in full bloom during Holland's Tulip Time Festival on Monday, May 9, 2022, at Windmill Island Gardens.

HOLLAND — Tulip Time has announced a full slate of parades, shows and exhibits for 2023.

Multi-platinum entertainer Sara Evans will make an appearance. Evans is the fifth most-played female artist on country radio “in nearly the last two decades,” Tulip Time wrote in a release. Her five No. 1 singles include “No Place That Far,” “Suds In The Bucket, “A Real Fine Place To Start,” “Born to Fly,” and “A Little Bit Stronger.”

Girl Named Tom will also play during the festival. The group made history as the first-ever trio to win NBC’s “The Voice.” Back by popular demand is Elton Rohn, the Elton John tribute show that sold-out during Tulip Time 2022. Elton Rohn features full harmonies and all musicians playing and singing live.

The Tulip Immersion Garden, which debuted in 2022, returns in 2023 with a new location at Beechwood Church in Park Township. World-renowned Dutch horticulturist Ibo Gülsen will display over 50,000 tulips in three stunning, raised displays to immerse guests in chest and eye-level tulips.

Guests explore the Tulip Immersion Garden on Wednesday, May 11, 2022, at the Ottawa County Fairgrounds.

Gülsen has crafted immersion gardens in China and Myanmar.

Also returning next year is the Tulip Time Artisan Market, which brings together over 200 vendors with unique, hard-to-find items. The market is moving to the Ottawa County Fairgrounds in Park Township, effectively trading spaces with the Immersion Garden.
