Powell Gardens Lunchtime Lecture: Tulip Mania

April 30, 2022 @ 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM CDT

What was Tulip Mania? Tulip mania was a period during the Dutch Golden Age when prices for bulbs of the recently introduced tulip reached extraordinarily high levels.

Join Education Manager, Caitlin Eckard for a deep dive into the social history of Tulip Mania, as well as the lasting effects on the Dutch economy after the bust of tulip sales.

After lunch, we will tour one of the spring flower collections- weather pending. A boxed lunch and non-alcoholic drink are included with your ticket. Your ticket price also includes admission into the Painted Garden Festival, a value of $12.

The registration deadline is April 26.
