Spring is just around the corner and the time when the flora and fauna of North Cyprus is at its best.

This is Festival time and we can look forward to the 13th Tepebaşı Tulip Festival which is being held on 18th and 19th March and is organised by the Tepebaşı Culture, Art and Environment Protection Association (Tepder).  The event will start at 10am on the 18th March and finish at 6pm on the 19th.    We would like to thank Ahmet Gurol Ersun for providing information which we are sharing with our worldwide readers.


After the opening ceremony at 11.00am on the 18th March, throughout the day there will be folk dancing, concerts, and Tulip walks.

There will also be trekking and this event will be early morning on Sunday 19th March.

In the festival area there will be stands which will be selling local foods, craftwork etc. so there will be plenty to see and do.

Why not make a diary note to go along and enjoy this Festival.   We are hoping to be able to go along ourselves for the first time.
