Tulip festival to return to the city on March 5th

Tulip growers in the United States, together with their European flower bulb suppliers, are returning to San Francisco’s Union Square on March 5, 2022 for Flower Bulb Day. To celebrate International Women’s Day, the public is invited to pick a free bouquet created from the donated 100,000 tulips for themselves or to gift to a woman that has inspired them this year.

“We are so excited to be back in San Francisco for our popular Flower Bulb Day,” says Henk Westerhof, of Royal Anthos, representing the tulip growers and their suppliers. “A bouquet of tulips is the perfect way to honor the extraordinary women that inspire us every day. Tulips symbolize unconditional love, new beginnings and, charity.”

World-renowned floral designer Sarah Campbell, founder of Intrigue Designs, and fellow designer Jordan Marx will be live at the event, crafting a blossoming floral gown made entirely of tulips. The dynamic duo appeared on Netflix’s “The Big Flower Fight,” and their installations have been featured on NBC, ABC, in The Knot, and Martha Stewart Living. Sarah and Jordan will also be designing an interactive tulip presentation that will inspire and entertain visitors!

“Science confirms that flowers make us happy, promote compassion and kindness for others. And after the last couple of years, we could all use a little more of that,” exclaims Peggy Anne Montgomery from Garden Media Group. “Tulips are the perfect way to honor women and spread the joy only fresh flowers can bring. We hope it will become a new tradition to share a bouquet of tulips with the special woman in our lives on International Women’s Day.”
