SATURDAY: Sketch the Tulips


It's the Upper West Side Annual Tulip Festival

What fantastic weather we've had this Tuesday and Wednesday.  We've got a new site to visit - many thanks, once again to Shawne for another great suggestion.

The headline reads:   15,000 Tulips Will Takeover Manhattan’s West Side This April!  Who could resist?

15,000 tulips will bloom across the garden for an unforgettable floral festival you can’t miss. It will kick off on April 13 and run through early May. The month-long event is entirely free and open to the public.

Over the weekends of April 13-14 and April 20-21, visitors can enjoy special information days. In season’s past, curious visitors could even embark on a horticultural tour of the planting beds given by on-site garden members.

Here is the plan - the day starts a bit cold for outdoor sketching, but it should warm up by midday, so, we'll start at midday.


What:   We’ll be sketching the Upper Westside Tulip Festival

Where:   The Festival is located on West 89th Street between Columbus and Amsterdam Avenues.


When:  Start time - 12 PM  Noon on Saturday April 13th.   Running late?  Messed up by the subways?  Come anyway - we'll be there.


-   By Subway:  Take the #1 train to 86th Street and walk east on 89th.  

-   Or take the B or C train to 86t St and walk west on 89th St. 

Lunch:  No set time since we're starting later than usual.  Bring your own food and drink.  There are places in the neighborhood.  

Show and Tell:  3:00 PM - Location to be determined.


-    Bring a hat (for the sun - hopefully!)

-    Bring a stool if you have one, it gives you more options.  

If you can’t find us
