PAYSON, Utah (ABC4) – Music fans, mark your calendars as the third annual “Spry Here Comes the Sun” music festival starts in June!
The celebration of classic rock will take place at Payson Memorial Park on June 24-25. The event offers free entry to all guests. Pets on a leash will also be allowed to join the party.
The two-day event features performances from over 20 bands as well as plenty of family-friendly activities.
Visitors can take advantage of numerous on-site food trucks and vendors offering classic burgers, fries, slushies and more. A variety of child-friendly designs and games will also be available.
This year’s event will benefit American Red Cross. Spectators can use their smart devices to access a QR code available at the festival to donate any amount. Donations can also be made through the festival website.
Founded by the Utah Live Concerts Foundation (ULCF) during the pandemic downturn, the event aims to “bring light into the lives of those who have felt darkness.”
“The Red Cross is a beacon of hope around the world and there is so much work to do both locally and globally for those who are suffering,” says John Pilmer, 2022 ULCF Communications Manager. “We hope that even though these festivals are free, that attendees will open their hearts to those served by this great organization.
Festival schedule and details:
- Friday, June 24 — 2:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
- Saturday, June 25 — 9:30 a.m. – 8:30 p.m.
- Address: 300 Main Street South in Payson
Event organizers say more than 1,500 fans have attended the free concert event in the past and organizers say this year’s event will be “bigger and better than ever”.
“We are thrilled to bring fans and musicians together again in a safe, family-friendly environment,” says Pilmer. “The foundation held safe and COVID-free outdoor events in the midst of a pandemic. We think the crowd could be even bigger this year.
The ULCF plans to organize a second free music festival on August 19 and 20 in Orem called “Come Together”. More details on this event will be available soon.
