Lehi — Thanksgiving Point is proud to announce the return of our annual Tulip Festival (www.thanksgivingpoint.org) at the Ashton Gardens from April 9-May 8, closed Sundays. Due to the COVID-19 shutdown, last year’s festival was closed to in-person viewing and was highlighted in the first ‘Virtual Tulip Festival’.
Guests will return this year and see nearly 300,000 tulips, in over a hundred unique varieties, spread across the 50-acre Ashton Gardens for the Tulip Festival. Golf carts, wheelchairs, and electric scooters are also available to rent, if available. Guests are required to reserve tickets online at thanksgivingpoint.org as admissions are still limited inside the Ashton Gardens.
The 2021 Tulip Festival will be the public’s first chance to view the one-and-only ‘Thanksgiving Point Tulip’ or the ‘tulipa Thanksgiving Point’. It is a sunny yellow, highly fragrant, lily-flowering tulip. It was chosen from the tulip breeding program at Ruigrok Flowerbulbs in the Netherlands and was registered on the International Register of Tulip Names in 2020.
