When attending any of the concerts, make it a “getaway” with a stay at a member inn of The Bed and Breakfast Inns of Utah (BBIU). Member inns can be found near each location.

Tuesday, August 12, at 8 PM, Teasdale Community Park will host.  The Muley Twist Inn is IN Teasdale, so it is a just a short jaunt to the park. Nearby is Capitol Reef NP, just a few miles from Teasdale.
Thursday, August 14, 8 PM, the event will be held at The Red Cliffs Lodge.  Near Canyonlands and Arches National Parks, the closest member inn is in Castle Valley.  The Castle Valley Inn is off of Scenic Hwy. 128, the same road on which Red Cliffs Lodge is located.  In nearby Moab, find the Sunflower Hill  and Cali Cochitta Inns.

Saturday, August, at 8 PM, the final presentation takes place at the O C Tanner Amphitheater in Springdale.  With Zion NP as the backdrop, the towns of Springdale and Rockville are perfect locations to be close to the event.  In Rockville, find the Desert Thistle and Bunkhouse at Zion inns.  In Springdale, find the Red Rock Inn, Harvest House B & B, Zion Canyon Lodge, Novel House B & B, Canyon Vista Lodge, Under the Eaves at Zion.  Also in nearby St. George are the Seven Wives Inn and Green Gate Village Historic Inn.

Be sure to ask the innkeeper for additional “thing to do and see”.  They are often very willing to share their own favorite treks and hidden places.
