The Wind Fest & Energy Expo is celebrating it second year. Last year, over 20,000 people attended the festival and countless emails, letters, and phone messages have proclaimed it to be one of the best family activities of the summer. It is also the 1st Anniversary of the first commercial grade Wind Farm in Utah (the nine turbines you can see at the mouth of Spanish Fork canyon). This Festival is all about bringing education together with wonderful entertainment (edutainment) to help families improve their living and playing skills with products that are both renewable and sustainable. Of course, we are all about Wind-powered devices and environmentally friendly businesses and products. It will be held on a mountainside plateau and reservoir near the mouth of Spanish Fork Canyon. August 28th (4:00 to 10:00pm) & 29th (10:00am - 4:00pm). The plateau is the site of the Spanish Fork Gun Club, which is located in the heart of the Wasatch Mountains, overlooking the beautiful Utah Valley. This location offers a rare and stunning view over an expansive valley surrounded by snow capped mountains.
Entertainment & Events
Brought back by popular demand is the fabulous jet ski Kite Team: Kiteman Productions from Orlando, Florida. If you were unable to attend last year this is one spectacle you should try to see. They are amazing! Also, on the main flying field, Utah Kite Fliers will demonstrate expert flying with their multiple stunt kites both on Friday night under the lights and on Saturday (wind-permitting) all day; the most popular feature of the Wind Fest was the Childrens Kite Making Workshop which will be in full swing this year. Also, we will again feature the Kite Garden display called Aerial Art by local kite creator Scott Hampton. On Saturday at high noon, you can witness the Parade of Flight Small Aircraft fly-over to honor the 1st Anniversary of the Wind Turbines.
The Wind Fest also features the popular Energy Expo. Vendors, businesses, and Entrepreneurs from the surrounding area will feature "green" products and practices. This Expo is unique in that you can actually test drive a Segway or a Klune Chariot, or an Electric Gem Car. There are many exciting products featured like solar camping gear, low energy stoves, conversion kits for vehicles, and more.
Please note: The Reservoir will be closed Thursday, Friday, & Saturday, August 27-29 due to the Wind Fest Event. All are invited to enjoy the Wind Fest! $5.00 per car.
