Annual tulip bulb giveaway scheduled for August 2016. Actual date will be posted when it is available.
The City of Boulder’s Parks and Recreation Department is hosting its annual tulip bulb giveaway sometime in August in front of the Boulder County Courthouse on the 1300 block of the Pearl Street Mall. Tulip bulbs will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis (one bag per family). A small donation is appreciated in support of citywide parks and horticulture maintenance efforts.
The department has been hosting this free event for Boulder community members since 2006 with the goal of sustaining beautiful and unique tulip spring blooms on the Pearl Street Mall while providing an opportunity for interested gardeners to enhance their homes and public spaces through local resources. More than 50,000 tulips have been given away since the inaugural event in 2006. Last fall, department staff planted about 5,500 new tulip bulbs including a wide variety of color.
