The Lewes Chamber of Commerce’s 12th annual Lewes Tulip Celebration will be blossoming on April 2 - 11, 2021 in partnership with Lewes in Bloom. The event plan was approved by Delaware Division of Public Health and follows the governor’s latest emergency order dated Feb. 19. Safety measures include mandatory face coverings and social distancing when visiting the public gardens where tulips are planted. Tiptoe To The Tulips Trolley Tours will not be available this year.
The timing of the tulips’ appearance is an inexact science, and milder or colder weather swings can mean the celebration may not exactly coincide with the tulips blooming. The event dates span two weekends. Tulip planting locations will be identified on the Tiptoe To The Tulips Map, with more than 100 varieties on display. The map will be available in mid-March at the Lewes Chamber of Commerce Visitor Center in the historic Fisher-Martin House in Zwaanendael Park. The visitor center is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday to Friday and from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Saturdays, April 3 and 10. The map also has a schedule of activities associated with the tulip celebration.
Lewes in Bloom will be selling tulips in front of Citizens Bank on Second Street from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., Friday and Saturday, April 2 and 3. For photo selfies, an Instagram photo spot will be set up in nearby Mary Vessels Park.
