***** Ananda's Annual Tulip Festival ******

Hope you can gather with us for our second annual visit to Ananda Village where they celebrate the blooming of over 10,000 tulips.




Their grounds are breathtaking and an experience you'll treasure. We'll meet at the Eric Rood Government Center on Highway 49 at 10AM to leave by 10:10AM in a carpool to Ananda. Lunch is available at the Master's Market where they maintain a reputation for wonderful dishes.

"Master’s Market is a vegetarian grocery, bakery, deli and café located in the heart of “downtown Ananda.” Sit indoors or out on the Village green, and savor a meal or treat while enjoying good food, good company, and the uplifting surroundings of Ananda Village.
In addition to healthy grocery items, a well stocked bulk section, and a variety of fresh produce (some of it from our own Ananda Farm),

Our deli features delicious vegetarian sandwiches and entrees to go.

Our bakery offers fresh baked breakfast items, cookies and brownies, as well as organic coffee and chai.

Our café serves hot lunch Monday – Friday at 12:30 pm and Saturdays from 11am – 4pm, featuring a specially prepared entrée and side dish, as well as organic salad and dressings from scratch," is what they claim on their website.

Join us annually for our Crystal Hermitage Gardens Tulip Open House for an incredible show of over 10,000 tulips and flowering trees, set amidst soaring mountain vistas.

This yearly event has become a premier Northern California tradition, drawing thousands of visitors. The grounds are open and you're welcome to browse about their little shop with trinkets, wander through the gardens and visit several open interesting buildings.

What to expect;

Beauty, music, refreshments, gardening questions and answers, fellowship.

Crystal Hermitage is the spiritual heart of Ananda Village and the home of Swami Kriyananda, Ananda’s founder. Beautiful terraced gardens, expansive vistas, and peace of mind await all those who visit Crystal Hermitage. Find solitude in our lovely Chapel which was inspired by the Porziuncola of Saint Francis, or in Shrine of the Masters, which houses relics of our gurus and other great saints of Self-realization. Shop in our uplifting gift shop for friends or yourself. Or just enjoy some time in the Garden.

Admission: Free
