ST. GEORGE — Long a rite of autumn in Southern Utah, the free Spookytown Fair returns to St. George Town Square Park on Saturday.
Hosted by the St. George Area Chamber of Commerce, the family-friendly community festival is expected to attract thousands and is designed to showcase all that Southern Utah has to offer, including free kids games, food options, live performances and vendor booths.
Attendees will also get to learn about various local businesses as well as many nonprofit organizations. Vendor booth spaces can be purchased by Chamber of Commerce members at a discounted price. Those who are not members of the chamber can purchase booth space at the regular price. A portion of the proceeds from Spookytown go toward scholarships for high school students intending to pursue higher education at Dixie State University or Dixie Technical College.
“With Town Square as the ideal location, this promises to be an extraordinary festival,” said Susi Lafaele, operations director of the St. George Area Chamber of Commerce. “This event really gets to the heart of who we are and showcases our wide array of organizations and services.”
Food trucks will be in abundance, offering a variety of menu options.
“It comes as no surprise that people are often motivated to attend festivals because of the food,” Lafaele said. “This year we will have more food choices than ever before.”
