Thanksgiving Point Tulip Festival Runs April 12 – 27

Thanksgiving Point is a fun destination with a wide assortment of attractions including:
  • Extensive Gardens
  • Children’s Discovery Garden
  • Farm Country
  • Museum of Ancient Life
  • Emporium
  • Restaurants
  • Shops
  • Theaters
It is a great, family-friendly destination located halfway between Salt Lake and Provo.

Right now the gardens feature thousands of tulips in full bloom. The sight is impressive and has spawned an annual Tulip Festival. Thanksgiving Point provided the details below.

(Speaking of flowers, wildflowers are coming on strong right now in the SW Utah deserts around St. George. The Salt Lake Tribune has this article about wildflowers in Snow Canyon State Park.)

Welcome spring this April and enjoy all the colors of the rainbow spread throughout nearly 100 different varieties of tulips during the annual Thanksgiving Point Tulip Festival. Featuring 250,000 tulips spread throughout the 55-acre Thanksgiving Point Gardens, the Tulip Festival is an awe-inspiring sight that is redesigned each year to create a new display.

In addition to the spectacular tulips, on Fridays and Saturdays the Tulip Festival includes music, vendors, and food. Garden tours and demonstrations run every day. And though there are hundreds of volunteers and staff working behind the scenes to create the festival, make no mistake about it: Mother Nature is in charge of the show. Regular Garden admission fees apply, free admission for Thanksgiving Point members
