Washington Park tulip dig and sale 2018

Washington Park tulips 2018 Moses background

The annual Washington Park tulip dig and sale is usually the weekend after Mother's Day -- but that depends on the tulips.

And this year, because of the cool spring, the tulips are still doing their thing. So this year's dig and sale is May 26 and 27. Blurbage:

The event kicks off on Saturday at the Park's iconic Moses Fountain at 9am. Volunteers will join City of Albany Gardener Jess Morgan, City of Albany Department of General Services staff and members of the Washington Park Conservancy for the annual ritual of digging up the city's iconic tulip bulbs. Participation in the event provides volunteers with the opportunity to purchase 30 bulbs for $5 in exchange for assistance in preparing the park's beds for the summer season. The remaining bulbs will be sold first-come-first serve to the general public on Sunday at the Park's Lakehouse beginning at 9am for the same price and quantity.

Those bulbs go fast on Sunday, so if you'd like to buy some it's a good idea to be there right at the start.

Proceeds from the sale go to support the Washington Park Conservancy.
