The middle weekend of June livens up Tabernacle Square with a juried art festival that includes live music, great food and a children's art yard. Artistic mediums include: oil and watercolor paintings, photography, sculpture, fiber art, jewelry, pottery and more. More than a hundred artists bring their works to the grounds of the Logan Tabernacle. There are concerts every evening in this over 30-year tradition.

The third week of June carves out four days of art celebration downtown on Library Square. Visual, performing and culinary artists have astounded 80,000 visitors annually since 1977; this includes live music, dancing and kids' activities. Over 250 artists share their creations in a three-block stretch of town. Think about what "culinary" art entails, and then plan your visit.

The very first part of August, a Kimball Arts Center fundraiser is held to fund and support free exhibitions, gallery tours and Art Talks year-round as well as art education outreach for the entire community. Over 200 artists, jury-selected, in 12 media areas, exhibit in historic Main street for over 57,000 visitors. A children's area, music and excellent cuisine are included. This event is partnered with the Sundance Institute, the Park City Performing Arts Foundation and the Deer Valley Music Festival, to name a few.

Classical chamber music is showcased in the last of August and first week of September for 12 days in the red canyon-lands of Moab; old and new masterpieces from around the world are performed. This feast for the senses is an international event. Ancient red rock surrounds the concert venues for heightened enjoyment of sights and sounds.

After the first few days of September, the state fair opens up with a bang and runs for 11 days. From deep fried Twinkies to fine art, it's all in there. Rides, animals, live music, and more draw thousands. Interesting competitions and maggot sandwiches are unique to this state fair, but are not required activities. Of course, there are a lot of games and little yellow ducky grabs for toddler prizes.
