A highlight of the summer is coming this week when the 2017 edition of the Summerfest Arts Faire opens Thursday and continues through Saturday on the grounds of the Logan Tabernacle.
According to Elaine Thatcher, Summerfest executive director, there will be 138 artist booths, many of whom keep coming back to Logan because their work is so popular here.
“We focus on art,” Thacther exclaims. “We don’t allow any booths that are selling something that the person hasn’t made themselves. No essential oils, or factory-made clothing or anything like that. It’s all hand-made art. There are some wearable things, some clothing, some soaps and lotions, some paintings, all kinds of different hand-made arts and crafts.”
Thatcher says there will also be 20 food vendors and 38 performing groups on two stages for the Summerfest visitors to enjoy. New this year is a Creation Station and a special folk arts area presented by the Utah Division of Arts and Museums.
