Glenn Beck will appear at Freedom Fire

LOGAN — National radio host Glenn Beck will appear at Thursday night’s Freedom Fire Independence Day celebration, in Romney Stadium.

The announcement was first made Wednesday afternoon on KVNU’s For the People program after it was confirmed Beck was going to attend the show and wanted to participate.

Freedom Fire producer Holly Fjeldsted said she and her committee were excited to learn the news.

“We had reached out to Glenn Beck earlier in the springtime, hoping that he would be able to be a part of the show,” said Fjeldsted. “Unfortunately, our schedule and his didn’t quite mix. But as it turns out he was going to be in town and reached out to us hoping if it wasn’t too late he could still be a part of the show. We are thrilled and definitely excited for him to be a part of Freedom Fire and we made room for him in the show. So we are just really excited to have him.”

Gates will open at 7 p.m. and the show begins at 8 p.m.

Fjeldsted said Beck is speaking for free and organizers have scheduled him to speak for 10 minutes but the time he takes the stage is being kept a secret.

“He is definitely going to be a part of the show,” said Fjeldsted. “I don’t know that I’m going to reveal exactly what time he’ll be there but it’s going to be sometime between 7 and 10. How about that?”

Beck recently purchased a summer home in Dayton, Idaho, where he says he visits to relieve stress. Fjeldsted

Fjeldsted said tickets for Freedom Fire are being sold at the Logan Rec Center, Cache Valley Visitors Bureau and the south ticket office at Romney Stadium.

Thursday’s show will also include performances from Mile Marker 6, the American Festival Chorus & Orchestra and appearances from Miss Utah Karlie Major and Brent Carpenter, the show’s Honorary Grand Marshal.

Beck will also be speaking Saturday, July 5 at the Dahle Performing Arts Center in Dayton. The event will benefit the Dahle Performing Arts Foundation, the Worm Creek Opera House and the Oneida Stake Academy.
