If you come to historic Gardner Village mid-September through October, you’re in for a real treat! And maybe a few tricks as well as the witches come out to play during the annual WitchFest in West Jordan, Utah.

The menace is intentional each year as crews begin working on WitchFest, Gardner Village’s 45-day celebration of everything witch, complete with witch displays and a scavenger hunt to find them, Breakfast with a Witch, Witchapalooza Music Dinner Theater, a Witches 5k Run/Walk, and the popular Witches Night Out, which is currently in its 18th year. Other events also include Six Hags Witches Adventure and Wee Witches Weekend and Witch in the Kitchen cooking demonstrations with Lucinda, the Gardner Village witch. New during 2018 is the Moonstruck Witches Dinner, a private dinner event held during Witches Night Out.

“Witches’ Night Out draws thousands of would-be witches to the Village each year,” Joe Long, CEO of Gardner Village, said. “They come wearing elaborate costumes and pointy hats, ready to shop, eat, play and have a lot of witchy fun.”

With the ambiance and charm of an early Utah village, the brick-lined paths surrounding the historic Gardner flour mill are the perfect backdrop for the whimsical witch displays that adorn the property during WitchFest. One green-faced beauty sits on a shop roof trying to get cell phone reception on her “eye” phone. Overhead the Wicked Witch of the West furiously pedals her bike. And don’t miss the poor old witch who didn’t see what was coming while flying. She’s smashed up against the flour mill silo like a bug on a windshield.

Gardner Village features 22 retail specialty shops surrounding the historic Gardner Mill, now listed on the National Historic Register. The old flour mill is home to Archibald’s Restaurant, Mill Plaza and CF Home. Vintage pioneer architecture, antique fixtures, red brick paths and bridges add to the atmosphere that takes you back to a simpler time and spotlight Utah’s colorful history.

Gardner Village is a Utah historic site and is located at 1100 West 7800 South in West Jordan, Utah, a suburb of Salt Lake City. The Village is open year ’round, Monday through Saturday.


Oktoberfest @ Snowbird

Oktoberfest at Snowbird is a family-friendly affair with activities, food, and, of course, brews for days — weeks actually. The highly-anticipated festival begins each August and lasts through October, taking place every Saturday, Sunday, and Labor Day. It’s probably the greatest beer festival Utah has to offer, so don’t miss out!

“Oktoberfest at Snowbird is one of Utah’s greatest cultural events,” says Bob Bonar, President of Snowbird. “It’s been a Utah tradition since 1973. What’s more, Snowbird’s annual festival was voted one of America’s 10 Best Oktoberfests by Men’s Journal Magazine.”

Snowbird’s Oktoberfest attracts more than 60,000 visitors each year making one of the largest festivals in Utah. Every Saturday and Sunday, you can party and play with thousands of attendees, drinking everything from American pale ale to stout made with a wide variety of hops and brew methods. Admission to Oktoberfest is free and the event runs from Noon – 6:30 pm.

Please note: Due to scheduled maintenance, the Aerial Tram will be closed from October 9 – November 2, 2018. Additionally, the Peruvian Lift is closed for summer season.
