Experience the Wonders of Spring: Colorful Gardens, Exciting Activities, and Lasting Memories for the Whole Family and Friends


Myriad Botanical Gardens enthusiastically announces their inaugural Tulip Festival on Saturday and Sunday, April 8 and 9 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. This two-day event will feature eye-catching spring blossoms, creative displays, classes, musical performances, and 50+ local food and merchandise vendors.

This is a free experience amongst vibrant flowers and friendly faces, with additional activities like face painting, professional photo shoots, and carousel rides available at affordable prices. To help support this public space, consider donating to the nonprofit Myriad Gardens Foundation; your generosity will go directly towards developing more experiences for all! Options to donate will be on-site.

The festival will also feature “A Conservatory Abloom!”- the first Crystal Bridge floral show since reopening - running April 1-21. Guests can view an array of floral colors inside the conservatory including Easter and cala lilies, flowering hydrangeas, Bougainvillea, additional bromeliads, flowering vines, and more. Admission starts at $10.50 with discounts for seniors, military, students, and youth. Members get free admission all year. Purchasing a membership is recommended to help keep the Gardens vibrant throughout.
