I've been a member for several years, and had my wedding here this year. The gardens are beautiful, especially considering they're in a mountain desert. The event staff are just outstanding--helpful and very well-organised. We also love the outdoor concerts--make the most of this place!

Beautiful place to spend the day. It is huge and could spend hours wandering around looking at all of the plants. Bring drinking water with you. The views are amazing. Has a little art gallery inside and a cute gift shop.

I went in the vendor gate so the line wasnt as long, but I saw people at the other gate about an hour before it opened. There isnt a bad spot in the house, though.

Our gift shop has iced coffee in bottles, coca cola products and candy bars and nut/raisin/chocolate mix snacks. Next door to Red Butte Garden is a cafe. At the bottom of Wakara Way is a Corner Bakery.
