I had the amazing opportunity to take my family to the Tulip Festival at Thanksgiving Point for the first time this year. It was such a fun experience and the kids are already talking about going back next year. There were so many Tulips and flowers everywhere. I felt like I was in heaven. The different styles of gardens, fountains, waterfalls, statues, and designs all combine together to make a unique and amazing experience that you will remember for a lifetime.
This year Thanksgiving Point presented the 13th annual Tulip Festival at the Ashton Gardens. It ran from April 7- May 6, closed Sundays. More than 280,000 tulips in over a hundred unique varieties are spread across the 55-acre Ashton Gardens for the Tulip Festival. 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 redesigned with tulips imported directly from Holland to create a new display each festival. At the Tulip Festival’s conclusion, the tulip bulbs from the event go on sale for three dollars per dozen to create mini Tulip Festivals in yards across Utah.
A new addition to the Tulip Festival this year was the Tulip “Beats”. As you walked around you could see the “Tulip Riot”, “Tulip Fashion Show”, “Italian Gardens”, “Umbrella Walk”, and the “Secret Garden”, just to name a few of the new “beats” inside the Tulip Festival. A total of 10 “beats” showcased these magnificent flowers in a variety of ways. It was so much fun to find them all and enjoy the views.
