Utah Winter Faire Returns for Fourth Year to "Bring Magic Back to Winter," Provide Fun and Memories for Guests of All Ages
FARMINGTON, Utah, 2016 – Now entering its fourth year, the Utah Winter Faire (http://www.utahwinterfaire.com/) combines the best parts of a Renaissance Faire with elements of pirate, fantasy and Steampunk entertainment. The result is an event with something for the whole family. This year, the Utah Winter Faire will be open December 2-4 at the Legacy Events Center in Farmington.
The variety of attractions at the Utah Winter Faire is certain to stimulate guests' sense of wonder and curiosity. The Faire features a variety of accomplished artisans demonstrating skills that few possess. In addition, dozens of vendors will be attending; a complete list is available on the website. When not shopping for a perfect gift, or watching an artisan ply her trade, guests can enjoy unique attractions like juggling, dancing and storytelling. All entertainment is free with general admission.
Returning to this year's edition of the Faire is the Armored Combat League, who will be holding their Western Conference Tournament. Combatants wear real armor and wield real weapons in full-contact matches that are as incredible as they sound. The Armored Combat League is among the most spectacular and popular events at the Faire, and as with every other attraction, entry is free with general admission.
As a family-friendly event, the Utah Winter Faire has several activities geared for the youngest guests. Children can participate in activities like the Children's Quest, explore the Village Green area or meet the Faire's many colorful characters – Steampunk Santa, the Arctic queen, mermaids, and famous historical figures. One of the goals at the Utah Winter Faire is to combine education and interactive entertainment in a way that children won't soon forget.
From noon until 1 p.m. on the opening day of the Utah Winter Faire, admission is free to all students. This special "Children's Day" offer covers home schools, public schools, private schools and any other educational groups. Instructors can download educational packets to help them incorporate a trip to the Faire into a lesson plan on medieval history and culture or fantasy literature, among other possible topics.
General admission to the Utah Winter Faire is $12 at the door, and children 6 and under get in free. Discounted prices are available online through December 1.
