Georgefest: Oktoberfest


(KUTV) Salt Lake City - As if you need another reason to visit St. George this time of year, Georgefest kicks off their Oktoberfest October 6th, 2017. Melynda Thorpe, Georgefest founder & creator, joined Kari & Dave on Fresh Living to talk about the big event.

Georgefest is now in its 3rd year, taking place on the first Friday of every month all year long. (St. George is the one place in Utah where we can do an outdoor event all year long - it is the brighter side of the state.) Georgefest is located at Historic Downtown St. George. This event was created to gather members of the community together at the center of town - just like pioneer settlers did - to enjoy music, dancing, and socializing. We've found that people of all ages love it, so do tourists passing through. As winter approaches, Georgefest offers a great weekend trip opportunity to travel south and enjoy a year-round outdoor activity.

First Friday in October presents Oktoberfest - the biggest first Friday in St. George of the year. The Jazz Garden venue of the event for adults 21 and over will offer a variety of craft brews. And for families and attendees of all ages, the Main Street FREE Concert features Hoppy.
