Ogden Balloon Festival, Utah

Ogden Balloon Festival

Annual Events

Utah's many annual events and festivals can be a great way to have a good time and get to know Utah's unique culture. Throughout the year, there are annual events and festivals for just about everyone. Athletics, Native American Culture, Railroad History, Agriculture, Arts, Music, Outdoor Recreation - these are just some of the interests that are celebrated through Utah's annual events and festivals.

If you're going to Moab for its legendary mountain bike riding, you might consider booking your trip to coincide with the Annual Moab Jeep Safari! Enjoy the long-time events of the April Action Car Show, the arts at the Moab Music Festival (in the Fall) and Moab Art Festival, or get out and run the Canyonlands Half Marathon. 

Utah celebrates the arts all year long. The Utah Shakespeare Festival, in Cedar City, is world-renowned. For 50+ seasons, the ever-expanding festival now encompasses one and a half city blocks, and is committed to providing its patrons with a "total experience."

Salt Lake City has a robust schedule of annual events including the annual Utah Arts Festival, which finds artists from all over the planet converging on the state's capital to show their wares.

Two major balloon festivals you may want to add to your schedule happen on opposite sides of our state. In January, the tiny hamlet of Bluff in Southeastern Utah comes together to launch colorful balloons over an equally-colorful landscape. Every September, Antelope Island comes alive with the Antelope Island Balloon Stampede!

These are but a few examples of the spectrum of events that take place throughout the year. For a complete list go to www.visitutah.com/events.
