CALLING EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST FROM STALLHOLDERS FOR THE 2018 TULIP TIME FESTIVAL
Details on how to express your interest can be found below:
Wingecarribee Adult Day Care Centre and Dementia Australia have been announced as the charity partners for the 2018 Tulip Time Festival.
Well-known local celebrity, Noeline Brown has also been announced as the 2018 Tulip Time Ambassador.
Wingecarribee Adult Day Care Centres support the frail aged, disabled and socially isolated people in the community through the provision of programs and services for those affected by
dementia, their families and carers.
Dementia is the second leading cause of death in Australia. Simon Crowson, General Manager Fundraising, Dementia Australia, said "Dementia Australia is proud to be a charity partner and for the opportunity to raise awareness of the impact of Dementia in today's society".
Bob Constable, the Director and Chair of the Wingecarribee Adult Care Centres Extension Fundraising Committee, said "with the growing ageing population in the Southern Highlands there are not enough facilities to accommodate their needs, the 2018 Tulip Time Festival provides a great opportunity to raise the awareness of Dementia and the need for facilities to allow people to stay and be involved in the
community for longer with a sense of comfort and support.
Held on the first Saturday of the Tulip Time Festival, the parade is a lively and colourful celebration of the arrival of Spring and tulips in the Southern Highlands.
The parade features classic and vintage cars, marching bands, various floats and walking groups.
Locals and visitors line the street to enjoy the spectacle showcasing the diversity and community pride in the Southern Highlands.
If you would like more information and/or to be part of the parade contact Tulip Time

It’s been a very exciting period for Tulip Time since the end of last year’s record
breaking Festival (38,000+ visitors); with the pinnacle being named as
World Tulip Festival of the Year by the World Tulip Summit Society (WTSS).
This accolade is even more impressive when you consider the competition consisted of
high profile festivals with huge budgets from some 17 countries as far afield as Asia, Turkey,
the United States and Europe - including Keukenhof in the Netherlands!
Whilst we obviously can’t go head to head with some of the other competitors in regard to size, it was
noted that we excelled in the promotion and celebration of the tulip flower across a range of criteria
including the quality of the tulip experience, level of innovation, contribution to the destination’s
sustainability and amount of public and media recognition.
An interesting fact that perhaps goes unknown is that annually Tulip Time attracts 65,000+ visitors
to the towns and villages across the region, with 38,000+ of these enjoying the festivities
in Corbett Gardens overall resulting in $7.2 million flowing into the regions visitor economy.
