Every year the tulip season in Holland officially starts with the National Tulip Day in Amsterdam. It is celebrated on Dam Square in Amsterdam, where Dutch tulip growers build a very special tulip garden. Everyone is invited to come and pick some flowers! In 2024 the National Tulip Day (Nationale Tulpendag) will be celebrated on Saturday 20 January 2024.
