Some 275 fans of the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival gathered on a beautiful night inside and out at Skagit Valley Gardens to celebrate the unveiling of the 2013 official poster designed by Ginny Bode and featuring the work of artist Karen Sistek. Also unveiled were the official coffee, from Fidalgo Bay Coffee Roasters; the official beer from Anacortes Brewery; the official wine from Pasek Cellars; and the official chocolate from Forte Artisan chocolates.
In addition, Perennial Favorites shared the official apparel and merchandise; Warren Jewelers the official jewelry; MacGregor Publishing/YellowBook the official directory; and the official brochure and website by Skagit Publishing. William Bounds Custom Framing is the official framer of Tulip Festival posters.
Guests were also able to sample some of the finest treats from the area’s chefs, including The Garden Cafe, Calico Cupboard, Max Dale’s Steak & Chop House, and Swinomish Casino and Lodge.
New merchandise for 2013 is now available at our office at 311 E. Kincaid St. in downtown Mount Vernon. Thanks to all who took part in the first event of the 2013 Festival, our 30th!
