One even you won’t want to miss in Utah is the Thanksgiving Point Tulip Festival. It’s AMAZING! Photographers and families will be invading Thanksgiving Point to visit their Tulip Festival from April 10 – May 9! And guess what, you could be one of them, for FREE!
We are giving away Two Tickets to Thanksgiving Point’s Tulip Festival, courtesy of Utah Valley Convention and Visitor’s Bureau!
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.
I am SO super excited to take my family to enjoy the activities and take some photographs of my cute kids with colorful flowers. Maybe we’ll even enter a photo or two in the event contest!
Festival hours: 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday – Saturday
Tickets can be purchased at the Thanksgiving Point Gardens. The cost for the Tulip Festival is the same as the Garden’s admission all season long, $15 for adults, $12 for seniors and $12 for children aged 3-12. 2 and under are FREE. **FREE for Thanksgiving Point Members, and 25% discount for military with valid ID.
