Find a Utah fall festival to attend in 2021. Our events calendar for September, October and November 2021 has things to do across Utah including activities in Salt Lake City, Provo and Moab. Our list includes festivals celebrating the local harvest, food, music, beer, Oktoberfest and more.
At this point we have checked for 2021 dates on all festival events. Some websites had not been updated at all for this year, but where a date was available or a cancellation confirmed, we've updated our listing. We'll keep looking for new events to add, and we'll be working on updating Halloween and Thanksgiving events as well. We hope you find a fantastic event near you, enjoy!
All events showing 2021 dates need to be verified to confirm that changes to the schedule were not made by the organizers after publication here, due to COVID-19, weather/natural disasters, or other reasons. We do not run these events, and would hate for anyone to go out of their way only to find the event had been canceled after releasing a date. Please click through to the event website to confirm! Be safe and have a great fall!
