Thanksgiving Point Hosts Harvest Festival And Art Market

The second annual Thanksgiving Point Harvest Festival and Art Market will take place on Sept 23 and 24. The festival is held at Water Tower Plaza at Thanksgiving Point, located just west of I-15 in Lehi (about half-way between Salt Lake City and Provo).

The festival offers the chance to buy farm-fresh product and learn about many gardening topics. In addition, it offers live music and many kinds of activities. A “quick draw” competition will allow artists to show off skills by creating a painting in 90 minutes or less. There will also be a “great pumpkin” weigh-off.

See the Thanksgiving Point website for more information. The festival provided the information below. Several other fun festivals are offered in Utah County. See this website for details.

Kick off the official start of autumn at Thanksgiving Point. Join with us in celebrating at the 2nd Annual Harvest Festival where guests are invited to peruse locally-harvested fruits and vegetables and shop for locally-made products. Friday evening a Quick Draw (timed painting) competition will delight the crowds while artists race to make a masterpiece in 90 minutes.

On Saturday, community favorite Utah’s Giant Pumpkin Growers will bring their year’s biggest and best pumpkins to be weighed and judged in the U.G.P.G (Utah Giant Pumpkin Growers) 8th Annual Giant Pumpkin Weigh-off.
