The main goals of the Utah Lake Festival are to educate the public about what is being done to improve the lake, promote recreational activities, and allow the attendees to enjoy a beautiful Saturday at one of Utah’s greatest natural resources.
The Festival usually is held at the Utah Lake State Park on the first Saturday in June each year. The event typically draws between 3,500-4,000 people. Attendees can take part in a variety of activities such as:
- Sailboat Regatta
- Food Trucks
- Live Music
- Educational Booths
- Free Fishing Instruction
- Free SWAG!
- Boat Rides
- New activities every year!
*This event is intended as an educational opportunity, not for retail vendors. However, we do usually welcome a few food trucks to supply food to attendees. If you are interested, please contact us!
One of the biggest partners for the Utah Lake Festival is the June Sucker Recovery Implementation Program (JSRIP). This event is largely focused on educating the public on the efforts made by this program as described below:
“The June Sucker Recovery Implementation Program is a multi-agency cooperative effort designed to coordinate and implement recovery actions for June sucker. The program also recognizes the need for continued operation of existing water projects and development to meet future water needs. The program takes an adaptive management approach wherein biological information is gathered, reviewed and incorporated into the program on a continual basis. The program works to balance and accommodate water resource needs of the human population with June sucker recovery efforts. While the priority is on June sucker, the program also provides a mechanism to promote the recovery of other federally listed species, and prevent the need for further listings in the Utah Lake Drainage Basin.” – JuneSuckerRecovery.org
