GEORGEFEST GOES DARK FOR WINTER REVAMP

Following 33 months of consecutive first Friday events, Georgefest is going dark through winter months. New event leadership is scheduled to make updates to the event to offer a fresh start in 2018.

Carrie Bunker, newly appointed Georgefest interim executive director, said, “The Georgefest street festival you have come to know and love is getting a facelift. We have listened to your feedback and we are making things even better,” she said. “We are going dark January and February to prepare for a bigger and better 2018. Watch for our new launch on Friday March 2, and thanks for supporting Georgefest.”

Georgefest, a nightlife event designed to celebrate the best of southern Utah, is held on the first Friday of every month from 6-10 p.m., with the Jazz Garden at Green Gate Village open until midnight April–October. A point of pride for southern Utah residents, in November, Georgefest event creators were recipients of a Golden Spike Award from Public Relations Society of America for their research-based approach to creating and adapting Georgefest.
