With great reluctance and sadness, we announce the annual Symphony of the Canyons Christmas Festival, including dinner, concert and Saturday activities, will be canceled this year due to COVID-19 restrictions.

The festival has been a tradition of Kanab for 30 years! It kicks off the Christmas season with food, fun, entertainment and shopping opportunities, thanks to the generosity of local businesses and volunteers. Money raised funds the operations of the Symphony for the following year.

We are trying something different this year. Thanks again to the kindness of businesses and individuals, we will conduct a silent auction starting the week of Thanksgiving and going until Saturday, December 19. There will be gift certificates, restaurant vouchers, a handgun and other items of value. There will be six groups you may bid on. This is not a raffle. The highest bidder on December 19 will win the basket! The baskets will be displayed at local area businesses.

Bidding will be done online at symphonyofthecanyons.org, or by texting 435-899-0087. Current bids will be displayed online and the location of each basket.

The value of each basket will be over $1000. The Symphony hopes you will join the fun and make a bid. Hopefully you will be one of the lucky winners!
