Tulip Festival

The Tulip Festival Goes Virtual!

presented with Utah Community Credit Union (UCCU)

Thanksgiving Point’s annual Tulip Festival, presented with Utah Community Credit Union (UCCU), has some big changes for 2020. Originally scheduled in the Ashton Gardens from April 10 to May 9, the popular regional festival has now been rescheduled as a virtual festival to help slow the spread of COVID-19.  

2020 is an important year for Thanksgiving Point, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary. This festival change will allow the community to celebrate this historic time with spring and beauty, albeit from afar. Starting Friday, April 10th, see our schedule below for upcoming virtual events.

While the Tulip Festival is only available Virtually this year, the Ashton Gardens are re-opening for limited entry beginning May 1st. Tickets are available for reservation HERE.

The Tulip Festival is one of the most popular events in Utah with more than 100,000 guests visiting each year. The tulip display is created with bulbs imported directly from The Netherlands to create a new display each festival. This year’s festival includes the brand new “Thanksgiving Point” tulipa, a new variety of late blooming, scented lily tulip.

In addition to these virtual activities, guests can purchase cut tulips for loved ones, neighbors or even themselves to make the community bloom starting Wednesday, April 15. Please check back for more details. Many guests are also making donations to support the future of Ashton Gardens and Thanksgiving Point. Keep in touch on our FacebookInstagram, and YouTube to see what's coming up next!
