Many consider fall to be their favorite season. It’s easy to see why with natural beauty and ample traditions to look forward to in the coming weeks before the snow flies. One of those traditions is Harvest Market hosted by Sundance Mountain Resort. On Saturday, experience local artists, live Bluegrass and Americana music, and a market of carefully curated vendors. Celebrate the rich cultural heritage of the Wasatch while browsing through hand-crafted, local products. Breathe in the fresh fall air while enjoying delicious food and drink in the brilliance of the dramatic Sundance landscape. The day begins at 10 a.m., you won’t want to be late!
4th West Oktoberfest
Salt Lake City
Downtown Salt Lake City is buzzing these days. It sure has emerged in recent years as a vibrant scene for culture, dining, sports, and corporate conventions. For those looking to get immersed in the downtown happenings, head west for Oktoberfest at Mountain West Hard Cider. The two-day festival takes place on September 28 and 29 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.. Enjoy the urban autumn scene with local Salt Lake Valley cuisine. Mountain West will be offering all natural, gluten free hard ciders alongside high-end, one-of-a-kind craft beers from Red Rock Brewery.
4th West Oktoberfest is also an opportunity to experience live music, Utah vendors, fun fall activities and delicious food near the heart of downtown Salt Lake City. Games include giant jenga, cornhole, children’s activities and pretending that summer isn’t actually over. While that last one might not actually be an official game, we all know we’re playing it!
