Fall is coming to the Great Salt Lake and, as temperatures drop, it’s time to think about the fun festivals and destinations coming to our town this year. If you need to get a fresh ride to make to your favorite fall event around Salt Lake City, the Markosian Auto family of dealerships is ready to help. Our in-house financing can help get you back on the road so you won’t miss out on these great events.

Sugar High Desert Festival

This very recent addition to the Salt Lake social calendar is easily one of our most anticipated. The Sugar High Desert Festival returns for the second year of the sweetest treats in town. This year offers more than 60 Utah sweet shops and bakeries. You’ll be able to taste the confectionary delights with tasting tickets, called BiteCoins, so you can choose your favorites. Most vendors offer take-home portions for sale so you’ll be able to take home the yummiest sweets. Children under 9 don’t require a ticket.

BOOtanical at Red Butte Garden

Red Butte Garden’s annual BOOtanical celebration returns this year with a new theme: The Mystery of Red Butte Garden. Sherlock Chauncey, the famous gnome detective, is on the case and you can help solve the mystery. Starting October 20th, you’ll be able to take the whole family to this event. After 6 PM you’ll find live music, storytellers, puppet troupes and more! It’s great fun for the kids and not too scary.

Dog Days in the Maze

What if Fido wants to celebrate the spooky season? The Wheeler Historic Farm’s annual Dog Days in the Maze lets your four-legged friends enjoy the fun with you. This all-ages event starts October 24th, and one ticket covers you and your dog. Let that keen sense of smell guide you through the straw bale maze, hop on board the wagon ride, and check out the pet-friendly vendors. There is no contest, but human and pet costumes are encouraged.

Shred Fest

This winter kickoff tradition returns to Liberty Park in 2022 on November 5th and 6th. This year’s headliners include Hayden James and Jai Wolf, along with many other great acts. Shred Fest is more than just music. It includes a real snow rail jam where you can watch 50 of the best skiers and snowboarders compete for cash prizes. The event also includes film screenings and a variety of breweries and food trucks to keep you going while you jam out.
