Raspberry Days 2016 (Aug. 4-6)

Do you love raspberries on a warm summer day? Us Too!

Stop by Garden City from Aug. 4-6 for the annual Raspberry Days Festival. This fun and family-friendly event is hosted every year to celebrate the harvest of the world-famous Bear Lake Raspberries.

Each of the festival’s three days showcases fun events such as the Little Miss Berry Pageant, a craft fair, musical entertainment, an Rodeo, and even a 5K race and pancake breakfast.

The fun doesn’t stop there however! Come by Bear Lake State Park on the final night of activities for the fabulous Boat Light Parade!


Boat Parade at Bear Lake State Park

Here, boats are decorated with bright and colorful lights as they set out across the waters underneath an amazing fireworks display.

The boats leave at 9 p.m. and then return around 11 p.m. after the fireworks have concluded.

If you would like to decorate your boat in lights and participate in the parade, please contact the park at: bearlake@utah.gov or 435-946-3343
