Wasatch Wildflower Festival
Petal to the metal.
Held annually, the Wasatch Wildflower Festival is a multi-day event hosted at the four Cottonwood Canyons ski areas to celebrate the beauty and diversity of wildflowers in the Wasatch Mountains. The Wasatch Wildflower Festival was co-founded decades ago by CCF Festival partner, Alta Community Enrichment. The Festival is a special opportunity to educate visitors on how to ensure the protection of this important and unique natural resource. The Wasatch Wildflower Festival’s guided walks and activities are designed to be fun, family-friendly, non-commercial, free of charge, and open to all interests and ability levels. Volunteers share their knowledge and enthusiasm for an amazing variety of species on a variety of beautiful walks. The tours also reinforce careful stewardship and awareness of the ecology of the watershed environment. Come enjoy multiple days of wildflower walks, kids’ crafts, music, food and a healthy dose of the beautiful Cottonwood Canyons.
- Guided walks are classified as Easy, Moderate or Advanced and vary in distance, elevation gain and time commitment. Walks take place at a moderate pace and are open to all ability levels.
- Please plan for a day of hiking at high elevation: sturdy shoes are recommended, and we encourage you to bring water, sunscreen, a hat, sunglasses, snacks, layers of clothing, a walking stick and any other items to ensure your comfort out on the trail.
- Some walks require a Tram ticket, which will be available the day of the festival at a discounted rate.
- The Festival is offered free of charge but registration is required. Please complete the registration form and bring the confirmation email with you to the event (print copy or display on your phone or other mobile device).
