This year’s Harvest Moon Celebration kicks off on Saturday, September 22nd at noon. Now in its 17th year, one of Ogden’s biggest parties is getting even bigger this time around.
As Ogden says farewell to summer and welcomes fall, Historic 25th Street is packed with family friendly activities, live music, and artisan exhibits.
A highlight of this year’s celebration will occur up the street at the dedication of the Migrating Mural by artist Jane Kim at 1:00 p.m. The 160-foot-long installation is destined to become a crown jewel in Ogden’s new 9 Rails Creative District alongside The Monarch, which is currently undergoing a dramatic renovation.
One of Ogden’s most popular attractions, Social Axe, will be hosting a live Axe Throwing Competition. If you’ve never visited them at their physical location on Washington Blvd., Harvest Moon is the perfect time to give this rapidly growing sport a try.
Additional activities range from make-and-take craft projects, face painting, a climbing wall, henna tattoos, fashion shows and more.
A beer garden will feature the unveiling of Grand Teton Brewing’s new Hazy Harvest Moon IPA.
Main stage performances at the intersection of Lincoln Ave. and 25th will include modern bluegrass Americana from The Hollering Pines, soul music by Joshy Soul, and the final Summer tour stop for alternative psychedelic indie-pop band, James Supercave.
If you've had enough of the street, roll over to Peery's Egyptian Theater for their "Elvis Rocks Ogden 2018" screenings of Viva Las Vegas and Blue Hawaii.
The party on the street should run until around 8:00 p.m. After that, it typically rolls into the various watering holes up and down 25th Street. Check out Lighthouse Lounge, KoKoMo Club, Alleged, and Brewskis.
Most of all, have a great time and get home safely and responsibly!
