This year the Colonial Heritage Festival will be held at the Scera Park  (600 S State St, Orem) from July 3rd through July 5th (9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.).  The event is open to the public and admission is free.

The Colonial Heritage Foundation coordinates a multi-day, colonial living and reenactment event for the Fourth of July each year. Called the Colonial Heritage Festival, or “Colonial Fest” for short, it is the largest event of its kind west of the Mississippi River—incorporating more than one hundred artisans, craftsmen, teachers and reenactors. All of the people involved with this annual festival are volunteers—the Colonial Heritage Foundation pays no one for their time. They participate because they love Colonial history and because they believe in the foundation’s mission.
