The Utah Valley Convention and Visitors Bureau, the official marketing organization for Utah County, has launched an event website, UVTogether.com.

The website offers details and registration information for four of the area’s most popular events: the Tulip Festival, the Utah Valley Marathon, the Princess Festival and the Timpanogos Storytelling Festival.

“Many of our events are growing in popularity, and we wanted to provide an interactive site for those searching this spring for upcoming activities,” President and CEO Joel Racker said in a statement.

Thanksgiving Point’s annual Tulip Festival (April 14-28) features 250,000 tulips of more than 100 varieties spread across 55 acres of European landscaped gardens.

The route for the Utah Valley Marathon (June 9) descends 2,000 feet in elevation along the Provo Canyon Scenic Byway.

The Princess Festival (June 19-23 and 26-30) allows girls ages 3 to 10 to be a princess for a day and seek their own fairytale adventures. Costumed characters guide them along the way.

Nestled at the base of Mount Timpanogos, the 23rd annual Timpanogos Storytelling Festival (Aug. 30-Sept. 1) attracts more than 30,000 visitors from across North America and is one of the largest storytelling gatherings in the West.
