Can you believe it’s already been eight years since the inaugural Utah Lake Festival? Well, we’re just a month away, so mark your calendars! The festival has grown into a great opportunity to entice people to Utah Lake to partake in a variety of fun and educational activities all centered around getting people to experience the lake and learn about its recreational opportunities, the lake’s ecosystem, its native species, and the importance of stewardship. This year the Utah Lake Festival will be held on Saturday, June 8, from 10 am to 2 pm, at Utah Lake State Park, which is at 4400 W. Center Street in Provo.
The Festival, which is free, will offer an array of activities for everyone, including the opportunity to make and wear fish hats—a unique and fun mainstay of the Festival, a boat show featuring some fun and unique boats, a sail boat regatta, games and activities for kids, boat making demonstrations, storytelling, and boat tours. In addition, visitors will be able to check out fishing gear and bait for free, with no state fishing license required.
At the Festival, attendees will receive a “Utah Lake Festival Passport.” The passports are used to collect stamps from educational and activity booths. Once attendees obtain all of the required stamps, they will receive a free frisbee or water bottle.
It will be a fun time! We hope to see you there!
