Panguitch Quilt Walk and Balloon Rally

The annual Panguitch Quilt Walk Festival will be June 7-9. It is held to honor area pioneers. With heavy snowpack still in the mountains and their community facing starvation, pioneers found they could spread quilts over the snow and then walked on the quilts to keep from breaking through the snow's crust. It was slow going but they managed to bring supplies over the mountain and saved their families.

The festival includes free quilting demonstrations, a trunk show, cowboy action shoot and costume contest, Lions Club breakfast, Street Races, Old Red Brick Pioneer Home Tour, Craft and Pioneer Heritage Fair, Dutch Oven Cooking classes and more.

The Panguitch Valley Balloon Rally will be June 22-24. It is their 6th annual hot air balloon festival and it will feature 30 hot air balloons ascending each morning at 6 am. Also includes nightly live entertainment and a craft fair near the bank. Saturday will conclude with an evening balloon glow on Main Street beginning at dusk.
