"The team at Redkite are very excited to be partnering with Tulip Time in 2017. The opportunity to introduce ourselves to the local community and the thousands of visitors who attend the festival will make a significant difference to the lives of children with cancer and their families.
The generosity of Tulip Time’s visitors will help ensure that Redkite can provide practical, must-have support to more kids and families who need it - support like information, counselling and financial assistance. When their lives are turned upside down emotionally and financially by cancer, we need to be here for them. 
  We’re thrilled to be part of an event that celebrates community and Tulip Time has such a strong legacy within the local region. We’re incredibly honoured by this partnership which will help Redkite reach even more Southern Highlands families who need our support.”

2015 WORLD TULIP FESTIVAL OF THE YEAR

2015 World Tulip Festival of the Year

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.
