Tulip Festival

April 10 - May 18

Open now!

Thanksgiving Point’s annual Tulip Festival returns to the Ashton Gardens from April 10 through May 18!

Twenty years ago, when the Ashton Gardens first hosted the “Tulip Festival,” it was purely a spring flower showcase. Now, with the addition of entertainment, decoration, and more, Thanksgiving Point’s Tulip Festival has grown to be one of the largest and most popular Tulip Festivals in the nation.

Over 750,000 spring flowers, including tulips, daffodils, hyacinths, poppies, and more create the award-winning Tulip Festival – an unforgettable display of color and design through the 50-acre Ashton Gardens. Whether you’re celebrating spring with a general admission ticket or experiencing one of our curated packages, you won’t want to miss Utah’s favorite flower festival, only at Thanksgiving Point.
