Fun Utah Festivals 2011

In UTAH they have lots of fruit festivals that I love. We just attended Raspberry Days at Bear Lake over this last weekend and it was a great arts and crafts exhibit. We also attended the Park City Art Festival (no fruit attached to this one LOL) and it was an array of amazingly talented artists. I love it!

Here's a Link to the Onion Festival.

Next coming up is the Onion Festival in Payson, Utah which we have not attended but we might this year. It is September 2nd through the 5th. Here is a schedule of all the events.

The other fun thing that happens in Utah in the summer is the Parade of Homes. I love going and seeing million dollar homes and all the beautiful landscaping and decorating they have done. My favorite is happening now; the Park City Parade of Homes going on this weekend, next weekend and Labor Day weekend. It is one way to get some great decorating ideas. The price is $12.00 and the online tickets can be purchased HERE.

Here's a Link for Swiss Days.
The other few festivals I look forward to are the Swiss Days in Midway and Heber area. This is always on Labor Day weekend too and I have missed it the last few years. It is a fun one because everybody dresses up in Swiss garb and the music is playing and everything is decorated like a little Swiss village.

I love going to see the crafts, the fun festival food booths and games, the entertainment put on by the small communities and all the peaches and onions they have for sale at these festivals. I brought home some raspberry jam and fresh raspberries at Raspberry Days in Bear Lake, Utah and they were both delicious! I think it will be a fun time. I can't wait for these upcoming fun festivals and parades.
