Woodburn is 37 miles from Portland so it takes a little longer than 40 minutes to drive and make it to the tulip festival. But once you're there, it's worth it. It's $10 for a car load of people so pack up the kids and make a day of it.
and mobiles and wind chimes made from old cans, forks and watering pots...or maybe coffee pots.
But, if you come, please wear boots and pants (unless it's a sunny day) because otherwise you are going to be walking fields that are damp and sometimes very muddy.
And if you don't want to buy food there, pack a lunch or bring some snacks and a few water bottles.
And then be ready to spend a couple hours wandering the fields, taking pictures, looking at the gift shop and booths and watching the carver . . . plus more.
It's a great way to spend a day.
