About Us:

Thanksgiving Point is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization focused on improving the quality of life and increasing educational opportunities in the community.

Created in 1996 by Alan and Karen Ashton, Thanksgiving Point is the gathering place for the rapidly growing communities along the Wasatch Front and throughout the state. Their untold generosity is unparalleled, and the result is this wonderful community resource. In a world that is frenetic, over-programmed, and increasingly disconnected, Thanksgiving Point offers a respite from the demands and stress of daily living.

With quality at the core of what it offers, Thanksgiving Point contributes to the lives of individuals, families, and communities by offering transformative experiences that change lives through the promise of discovery. Hands-on discovery is delivered through innovative educational courses, day camps and field trips. Educational offerings are designed for every age group, from toddlers to adults.

Thanksgiving Point Gardens, the Children's Discovery Garden, Farm Country, Museum of Ancient Life, Emporium, and dining options offer stimulating and engaging experiences in a safe, family-friendly setting. By fostering a variety of learning opportunities, Thanksgiving Point brings families closer together and provides beautiful gathering places for groups of all kinds to share their cultural heritage and common bonds.
