• Little Dragon and Com Truise at Ogden Amphitheatre
Back up to Ogden you shall go. Unless, of course, you’re already in or around Ogden. Then just go. This week it’s an international fest with Sweden’s Twin Dragon and New York’s Com Truise
• Utah Foster Care Chalk Art Festival at The Gateway
Artists of all ages at Utah Foster Care’s Annual Chalk Art Festival at The Gateway. Experience a gallery of spectacular sidewalk murals, including 3D art, as well as kids’ activities, food trucks, and a special 801 Rocks display. It’s all free and benefits Utah kids in foster care, so it’s a good thing. Don’t be cynical.
• Brewvies in Ogden Outdoor Festival
Good lord, Ogden. The next thing you know, you’ll be hosting the Outdoor Retailers Convention. Hahaha, just kidding. Herbert won’t let that happen nor with the next guy. But, you’ll no longer have to travel to enjoy a beer, nachos and your favorite film without bratty kids asking stupid questions to their parents in their loud, little voices. Also, after seeing these seats, I want to know when Brewvies Salt Lake is getting a remodel.
• Mines and Wines Tour at Park City Museum
A three-hour, Park City tour (like Gilligan!) of six historic locations paired with great wines. We start at the Park City Museum where we enjoy a vintage sparkling wine made for the king and queen of Spain. Then we climb aboard a luxury vehicle for our other stops. Discover the Ontario Mine, Miner’s Hospital, First National Bank on Main Street, Silver King Consolidated HQ, and the Red Light District, where you’ll sip wines that Kirsten Fox, Headmistress, and executive sommelier, choose for each location. Light, paired snacks are included on the vehicle. Use of costume props are encouraged, but not required. Friendly reminder, you must be 21 years old. All this fun will cost you though, tickets are $187!

• Halloween in Summer
Magna’s old-timey Main Street gets creepy in the heat. Art on You Studios’ “Halloween in Summer Festival” is dedicated to expanding awareness and appreciation of Halloween through this annual all ages event which celebrates the history, traditions, multitude of Gothic, Dark, and Halloween Art, Horror Entertainment, and the growing, modern Halloween Phenomenon.
