This free, two-day learning and entertainment celebration features live music, arts and crafts demonstrations, storytelling, square dancing, music and art workshops, creative vendors and a Dutch oven dinner -- all held against the backdrop of Panguitch Lake, one of Utah’s hidden gems. This year’s event features headliners including storyteller / musician Clive Romney, Kanab-based newgrass / folk band The W Duo, native American dancer / flute player / storyteller Nino Reyos, and Joshua Baird and Tara Timpson -- a husband and wife team who entertain with mandolin, banjo, guitar and vocals.

Now in its fourth year, the Panguitch Lake Heritage Arts Festival harkens back to the month-long festivities that used to take place in the area in the 1890s - even before Utah was a state. At that time, local festivities lured visitors from Southern Utah, California, Nevada and Arizona to get away from the summer heat and relax in the coolness of Panguitch Lake’s higher altitude (8.215 feet elevation).
 

      

 

The schedule of events for this year is as follows:

FRIDAY, AUGUST 10 (4-9pm)

Panguitch Lake is only 25 minutes from Panguitch and one hour from Cedar City. A visit to the lake and festival make an easy day trip or weekend trip from many other cities in Utah and nearby states: St. George (1.75 hour drive), 

Mesquite (2.75), Salt Lake City (4.25), Las Vegas (4.25), Flagstaff (4.75), Logan (5.5), Bakersfield (7.5). Accommodations include lakeshore cabins, campgrounds and hotels in surrounding areas. Panguitch Lake is located on Utah State Route 143, also known as the Brian Head-Panguitch Lake Scenic Byway.
