All artists and local musicians are invited to bring their instruments to this hootenanny- style open-jam session event.
Come play, sing or just listen as our talented artists and locals show off their musical talents!
Tour begins at the Peoples Exchange, one of Escalante’s most photographed historic buildings. Come along to learn more about many of the historic structures throughout town. Escalante was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2013 as a National Historic District with areas of noted significance in architecture, social history, commerce, agriculture, and exploration/settlement.
Tour will be led by Dr. Larry Barnes, co-owner of the Peoples Exchange, an early (1899) co-op store on old Main Street, Escalante. His interest in Escalante history has led to several invitations to give lectures and to assist in preparation of the guide to the Escalante National Historic District.
10:00 am - 6:00 pm
Plan to stop by the Silent Auction that features goods and services from local area businesses and festival vendors to bid on items to help support festival programming. You never know what great items and fun services you might find to bid on. Be sure to bid often and generously!
Make plans to swing by the Escalante Fire Station to enjoy a yummy breakfast served up by Escalante Emergency Medical Response (EMT) and Fire Department Volunteers. Proceeds from this breakfast go to support the amazing work of our volunteer fire department and EMTs. Go show them some love and leave with a full tummy to boot!
