Avenues Street Fair

Avenues Street Fair, Salt Lake City, Utah, Live Music, Entertainment, Family FunThe Avenues Street Fair committee has been hard at work for the last few months. We are pleased to announce that the Street Fair will be held on 7th Avenue this year between “I” and “N” streets. The closeness to Lindsey Gardens will add some much appreciated green space for fair visitors to sit and enjoy the entertainment or just relax after walking the 5 blocks full of booths and delicious food.
.

The entertainment committee has been listening to music from a variety of groups and they tell us that they have put together a selection to satisfy anyone’s musical taste.

Our People’s Art Gallery is just getting under way, so if you are an Avenues artist, of any age, please remember to fill out an application to submit your work for the rest of us to enjoy. We also have an enthusiastic group of volunteers working on some exciting raffle prizes so save up your money for your chance at great raffle items.

Winterfest

Ogden City hosts the second annual Winterfest downtown Historic 25th Street & Washington Blvd, January 28 and 29, 2011

Rail Jam, Ogden, Utah Winterfest, Snowbasin, Weber County, 5k Run, Snowboarding, Snowmobiling, Sledding, Family, Children's ActivitiesThe city will close major downtown streets, cover them with snow and create the ultimate winter playground. The Winterfest organizing committee invites all to come and enjoy a variety of free activities. Last year’s celebration attracted more than 5,000 people.

The celebration where “Cold is Cool” boasts traditional and unconventional snow activities for all ages. Most events are free.

Events will begin on Friday afternoon with a ceremonial street closing on Washington Boulevard followed by a toboggan parade. Activities and contests will be held all day on Saturday.

This year’s “where cold is cool” events will include:

  • Toboggan Parade
  • Skijoring
  • Human Dog Sled Races
  • Polar Bear Swim
  • Snowmobile Street Races
  • Snowboarding Rail-Jam
  • 5K Run/Walk
  • Doggie Costume Contest
  • Flag Football Contests

And many more . . .

Don’t worry, we haven’t forgotten about the little ones. We’ve put together some free projects and events with the younger kids in mind:

  • The hill just east of Washington Boulevard on 25th Street will be available for tubing and sledding on Saturday morning and afternoon.
  • Snowshoeing around Municipal Park will be available all day Saturday.
  • Piles of snow will be hauled in to the Municipal Park for the children to decorate and make snowmen on both Friday night and Saturday morning and afternoon.
  • The kid’s corner on Saturday will have a small construction project for each child that wishes to participate.

Registration forms can be found on the right hand side of this webpage, or through Sportsman. We highly recommend pre-registering for all the events; space is limited and the events are bound to fill up fast.
