Thousands expected to attend annual Summerfest Arts Faire

The 2017 Summerfest Art Faire on the grounds of the Logan Tabernacle. 

Summerfest Arts Faire is Cache Valley’s kickoff to summer, held on Father’s Day weekend on the lawn of the historic Logan Tabernacle.

The family-friendly festival features three days of fine arts and crafts, music, and food.

Wednesday is set up day for Summerfest and that means “it’s always crazy with lots of people running in all directions,” according to Summerfest Executive Director Elaine Thatcher.

Some of those people include nine boy scouts who will be working on their Eagle Scout projects.

“They are indispensable to us,” said Thatcher. “They are great and they work really hard. They organize their teams and get a tremendous amount of work done for us,” she said.

The scouts will help set up around 165 booths for this year’s event expected to draw thousands of local and regional visitors.

“We’ve got our two stages going and some really amazing talent,” said Thatcher.

Headliners this year include Utah Artists, Kate Macleod, Memphis McCool and Many Miles.

Parking is always a bit of a headache during the event so if you are looking for an easy solution, Thatcher suggests taking the bus. Cache Valley Transit is offering free rides every 10 minutes leaving from the transit center at 500 North.

Summerfest 2019 hours are Thursday and Friday, June 13-14 from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., and Saturday June 15 from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.

The event is free to the public.
