Capitol Reef National Park Travel Guide

Festivals and Events


Bicknell International Film Festival. Don't get out your best black beret to attend this event—it's a spoof on serious film festivals. It begins with the world's fastest parade, a 55-"mph" procession from Torrey to Bicknell. Past themes have included "UFO Flicks," "Japanese Monster Movies," and "Viva! Elvis." No phone.


Wayne County Fair. The great American county-fair tradition is at its finest in Loa. Horse shows, demolition derby, rodeo, and a parade are part of the fun. There are also crafts such as handmade quilts, agricultural exhibits, children's games, and plenty of good food. 435/836–2765.
