Folks will be flocking to the mountains on July 24 and 25, for the annual Duck Creek Days event held at the charming mountain escape, Duck Creek Village.

Participants from California, Nevada, Arizona and Utah look forward to this annual event situated in the pristine setting on Cedar Mountain because of the cooler mountain temperatures, the stunning setting located in the Dixie National Forest, and the variety of activities during the festival.

There will be music and entertainment, kid’s games and activities, a chili cook-off, prize drawings (including a Polaris 900 RZR UTV), and vendors selling everything from barbeque sandwiches to concealed-pistol purses.

Duck Creek Village is in the heart of hundreds of miles of ATV trails, numerous ideal camping locations and favorite fishing holes, like Mammoth Creek, Navajo Lake, Aspen Mirror Lake and more.

“This festival is great because you can enjoy the festival and then take off on a fun ATV group ride, do some fishing, and come back for more festival fun!” said Las Vegas resident Michelle McGinn. “Our family looks forward to this event all year!”

Cabin rentals in Duck Creek Village usually book out early, but other options are available along historic, Highway 89 in Glendale, Orderville and Mt. Carmel, including the Best Western Thunderbird Lodge located just 30 minutes from the village at Mt. Carmel Junction.

Duck Creek Village is located just 11 miles east of the junction of Highway 89 and Highway 14 in southern Utah. For more information on the area, visit
