During the weekend of January 24th up to and including January 26th, the 40th – and final - edition of flower show 'Westerkoggeflora' will be held. This last edition revolves around Tulips, the art of Koggenland. Besides all of the tulips that are sent by tulip growers from the Koggenland area, the show is decorated with tulip art. The Westerkoggeflora takes place in Sporthal De Koggehal (De Goorn).
The art of tulips
Tulip cultivation and forcing is an art! The weather conditions, the quality of the tulip bulbs, the preparation, and eventually the forcing: it is a trade in itself. Over and over again, and each year is different! And we will show this to the public for one more time at the end of January. At the same time, various artists show their tulip art.
Between all of the art, the tulip growers show us their best tulips and will compete for one more time. Besides tulips, visitors can also admire decorations of lilies, alstroemerias, roses, chrysanths, and several other flower varieties.
Competition between primary schools
By tradition the students from the primary schools in Koggenland have received a pot with tulip bulbs with the assignment to make them flower perfectly. The most beautiful tulips get podium places at the Westerkoggeflora.
Free entry all weekend
We have organised beautiful shows for more than 40 years that brought in visitors from all over the Netherlands to Koggenland. We invite everyone to have a look one more time in the weekend of January 24th to January 26th. Because it is the last Westerkoggeflora, the entry to the exhibition will be free to the public for the entire weekend! On Sunday there will be music from Gerard Koedooder.
The Westerkoggeflora will take place from January 24th to January 26th, 2020, and is open every day from 10:00 AM. Entry is free.
