Rich’s picks for June 2022

Welcome to Rich’s Picks on June 9!

June 11-18 is Strawberry Days in historic downtown Pleasant Grove; and did you know that on the 18th, we’re basically having a “hot sauce party” known as the Sauce Lake City Festival at Utah State Fair Park? Well, we do.

Or how about “Savor the Top” on historic Park City Main Street on June 25?

We also have the Asian* and Greek festivals in early July, the first at SLC, the second at Price. And near my `ol alma mater in Cedar City is Summer Beerfest at Policy Kings Brewery!

From food to cinema, the Gateway hosts Movies on the Plaza on Thursday nights, with classics from the 80s and 90s starting at 7:30 p.m.

Millcreek’s “Venture Out” film series takes place in a different area of ​​Millcreek every Friday night. There is also a movie in the park every other Friday in Saint George and Monday in Provo. In fact, the towns of Kearns, Layton, Manti, Sandy and Vernal all feature a different movie in the park every Friday night! And the Sundance Institute’s “Summer Film Series” takes place July 14 and 21 at the Red Butte Garden Amphitheater. So bring your covers to all those events and enjoy a movie under the stars.

Or go see a local theatre! “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” presented by the Kensington Theater (formerly the South Jordan Community Theatre) runs June 10-20.

Kingsbury Hall has “A Night With Nikki Glaser” on June 10.

The Draper Arts Council wraps up its “Hairspray” series on the 10th and 11th, and wraps up Pride Week tonight at Wiseguys SLC is the “Pride Comedy Show!” featuring the best in queer comedy!

Speaking of stand-ups, there are plenty more where that came from at Wiseguys, as they have multiple locations!

Garrett Gunderson is scheduled this weekend at the Jordan Landing site, Tyler Boeh is in Ogden and Chad Daniels is at Wiseguys SLC in addition to the Pride Comedy Show and their usual Open Mic nights every Wednesday!

And don’t forget Dry Bar Comedy in Provo!

So many things to do, so little summer.
