Unofficial kickoff to summer begins with Summerfest in downtown Logan

It’s often referred to as the kickoff to summer and the 12th annual Summerfest Arts Faire opened Thursday and continues through Saturday, June 18th at the Logan Tabernacle grounds.

Executive Director Elaine Thatcher invites everyone to visit the event with its 143 talented artists, 22 food vendors and more than 30 musical performances on two stages.

Thatcher says there is one noticeable change this year. What was formerly known as the Family Art Yard has been replaced with what she calls the Creation Station.

“We want both adults and children to feel comfortable there. It includes everything from painting and theater games to dance movement and music, just all kinds of creative activities that people of all ages can get involved in.”

Thatcher suggests the best way to attend Summerfest is to ride the free Cache Valley Transit District bus. She says you can hop on a bus at the Cache Valley Transit Center at 500 North 100 East and ride the bus to and from Summerfest in downtown Logan.

Summerfest remains open Thursday and Friday from 11 a.m. until 10 p.m. and then 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Saturday.
