Ashton Gardens

3900 N. Garden Drive
Lehi, Utah 84043

As the weather turns warmer the tulips at the Ashton Gardens begin to bloom! 2018 marks the 14th annual Tulip Festival and we want you to experience it. Come enjoy 280,000 tulips in hundreds of varieties, all imported directly from Holland. The 15 themed gardens throughout Ashton Gardens highlight different displays sure to bring out plenty of oohs and aahs! This is one festival you’ll want to have a camera handy for sure.


2018 will bring returning favorites including the chance for guests to come and cut their own tulips from a special area. You’ll need to check in at the Ashton Garden Greenhouse to get special pruning sheers and pay before cutting. *Please do not cut any tulips from other areas in the Gardens.


While there’s plenty of new experiences this year, you can also expect some of the popular treats back from previous years including the Tulip Festival 5k and Kid's Run on April 28, and the Lyceum Philharmonic concert.  Visit HERE to register and get details on race start times and other activities that day. May 5 closes out the Tulip Festival with a stunning concert from the Lyceum Philharmonic at the Ashton Gardens’ Waterfall Amphitheater.


The Tulip Festival and many of these activities are included with admission or free for Thanksgiving Point members. To learn about the benefits of a Thanksgiving Point membership, please visit our member benefits page.
