There is a lot happening here in Southern Utah. So naturally we want you to make the most of it. The following is a list of the events in and around Capitol Reef for June 2014.
On June 6th the Entrada Institute of Torrey will hold it’s first Cowboy Dinner in conjunction with the Broken Spur Restaurant. Come enjoy the great food at the Robber’s Roost Bookstore in Torrey at 7pm. There will be a viewing of the acclaimed film Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid afterward. Cowboy dinners will be a recurring event.
On June 6th and 7th Capitol Reef will hold its Art and The Park event. Free activities and demonstrations will happen all day Friday and Saturday. (With ticketed events Saturday night.) The event takes place in Torrey, Utah. (Torrey is Capitol Reef’s gateway town, by the way.)
Also on June 7th, the State of Utah will have its annual free fishing day. You can go to any public water source in the state and fish without needing a license. (This is particularly useful if you aren’t a resident of Utah.)
Every Saturday night at 7:30pm the Entrada Institute holds its Sunset Lecture Series at the Robber’s Roost. Here is a brief schedule of the upcoming lectures:
June 14th – How and Why Birds Sing. Presented by Dr. Franz Goller, University of Utah.
June 21th – Roads in the Wilderness: Conflict in Canyon Country. Presented by Jedediah Rogers, Senior State Historian, Utah Division of State History.
June 28th – Sacred Landscapes: Why Tribes Matter in the Debate Over Public Lands. Presented by Gavin Noyes, University of Utah.
