Are you wondering how you will navigate experiencing all that Tulip Time has to offer? Rethink your transportation choice by taking the MAX Tulip Time shuttle. The shuttle not only offers you optimal convenience for getting around the festival, but it’s also better for the environment. By using public transportation you’ll save time avoiding traffic and parking lanes, and also reduce your carbon emissions. Be sure to check out the interactive map for details and routes so you can plan your Tulip Time activities now

As you explore the Tulip Time Festival, you will find water bottle filling stations available for free. Be sure to bring a refillable water bottle for reuse. No need to buy disposable bottles when you can conveniently refill! Additionally, you will find recycling bins around the festival, promoting stewardship of our resources. Be sure to recycle acceptable materials.

Lastly, Holland BPW’s annual drive through, drop-off Recycle Rewards event will be happening Saturday, May 19th from 8-noon at the Service Center (625 Hastings Ave) parking lot — right after Tulip Time! We will accept and give HBPW customers rebates for working refrigerators, freezers, window air conditioners, and dehumidifiers. We will also accept old holiday lights, anything 50% metal or more, and electronics. TVs or computer monitors will not be accepted. For a complete item list, visit

Remember to Rethink, Reuse, Recycle:  See you at Tulip Time!
