The board of Summerfest Arts Faire has announced that their 2020 festival will be cancelled due to concerns about COVID-19. The festival is usually held on Father’s Day weekend at Logan’s LDS Tabernacle Square.

Board chair Debbie Ditton said that the group closely studied Governor Herbert’s three-part COVID-19 plan before making the decision. “It was clear to us that even in the Governor’s Stabilization phase, there will be limits on the size of gatherings. We felt that having a gathering of some 60,000 people at this time would be irresponsible,” said Ditton.

Ditton said that the board expects to have the festival better than ever in 2021. “We are also considering the possibility of having a small event this fall,” she said. “We will announce that if we are able to make it happen.”

For the past 36 years, Summerfest has presented a mix of local, regional, and national artists, musicians, and food.
