New ‘Blooming with Pride’ event: Plants are for everyone

Tickets are available for Red Butte Garden and Arboretum’s newest summertime event, Blooming with Pride on Friday, June 14.

This new Pride Month event invites the LGBTQIA+ community and allies to unite and celebrate the rich beauty and diversity of the natural world. The event is co-presented with Equality Utah and supported by the B. W. Bastian Foundation, Magelby, Cataxinos, Greenwood and The Peggy L. Bergmann Trust.

Admission is free, but timed registration is required at

Among the event’s highlights is a showcase of artistic floral and plant displays created by local artists and florists. The seven exhibits on display were selected from more than 45 proposals submitted by artists nationwide. Each exhibit represents the diverse experiences within the LGBTQIA+ community, showcasing that, like plants, love and diversity thrive in all shades and forms.

Guests can also engage in family-friendly activities including craft projects, on-the-go science experiments, and a self-guided nature walk, as well as drop in to free health and wellness classes. The Garden’s Courtyard will also transform into a Unity Hub tabling space featuring local organizations that support and uplift the LGBTQIA+ community.

All are invited to experience this brand-new festival, where love, diversity, and the beauty of nature come together for Blooming with Pride, where plants are for everyone.
