    Tulips and Dutch dancing in Holland Michigan for 60 yearsAlthough we had to cancel all of special events in 2020, we are at this time, planning a special event schedule for 2021 with a return of many of our favorites, including Knights of the Realm and Pirate Weekend. However, our event schedule is tentative, and the details very much subject to change, until we see how the season evolves in regard to covid-19 restrictions.
