Burn, Dig, Walk, or Shop: St. George Utah Weekly Events

St. George, Utah – It’s 4:20 am Tuesday, September 16… and as usual, I can’t sleep. Fortunately, I can write. So, while the rest of the Southern Utah Real Estate World gets a restful night of slumber – I’m crawling the Internet looking for useful and informative content for my online real estate community.

With that in mind…

St. George Residents can now fire up their burn pile. According to the Washington County interagency burn permit management team; the cities of Santa Clara, Hurricane, Washington, St. George, Ivins, Leeds, LaVerkin, Springdale/Rockville, and Tocqueville can now apply for their burn permit online.

Southern Utah Community Activities:

Archaeologist for a day: September 18 Sharpen your pick, grab some gloves and enjoy a fun filled day as a Jr. Zion archaeologist – learn more about this fascinating profession that peers back in time seeking to gain insight on the Earth’s inhabitants over the last 4 billion years. The daytrip back in time kicks off at 9 am and lasts until approximately 3 or 4 pm. Make sure to pack plenty of snacks and lots of water; also visitors should be prepared to hike, dig in the dirt, and ultimately be exhausted by the end of the adventurous day. Be prepared to do site survey work, or perhaps some cataloging, or for that matter any number of other archaeological jobs. While it is fun… It’s not free: ZNP charges $45 for the event, which pays for the parks Archaeological staff. Meets: 9 AM Zion Human History Museum

Santa Clara’s annual Swiss day celebration: September 25th – 27th

Bored? Looking for something fun to do with the whole family? Then the annual Santa Clara Swiss Days Celebration might just be what the doctor ordered!  Initially celebrating its first Swiss Days back in 1990, the event was originally conceived as a way for Santa Clara’s citizens to pay tribute to the Swiss LDS pioneers who initially founded the quaint town in 1861. The celebration runs Thursday, September 25th –27th
Swiss Days Activities:

Make sure to show up to the Swiss Days event hungry and rested, as the daylong event includes a 5K walk/run (crawl) and pancake breakfast, culminating in a town long parade down Santa Clara Drive. Featuring everything from some sweet Harley Davidson motorcycles, to classic cars, a Grand Marshall, and some handcrafted floats … the parade will kick off at 9:30 a.m. sharp. Starting from the Jacob Hamblin Home and meandering down Santa Clara Dr., ending at the Town Hall. Car enthusiasts and dog lovers welcome, Swiss Days will also fire up their Red Rock Car Show at Canyon View Park and showcase Fido’s skills with some impressive dog dexterity demos. The daylong festival offers today’s residents an opportunity to share, play and learn about the town’s Swiss heritage together.


St. George Utah Farmers Market: Thru Nov.1

As a big fan of locally grown and sourced produce, the Saturday St. George farmers market is one of my favorite weekly events. Featuring locally grown produce, incredible live music and some amazing arts and crafts, the St. George centric affair is a wonderful opportunity for both residents and visitors alike to meet and greet many of the local artisans. From 8:00 am – 12:00 noon St. George’s famers market is held every Saturday inside the Ancestors Square courtyard.
