The Heritage Day Celebration includes a tour of many of the town’s charming pioneer-era homes and buildings, built along Main Street and throughout the town. Tickets for the home tour cost $10 for adults and $5 for children, and are sold at the Old Spring City School and the Old Firehouse (9 -2), and funds benefit preservation and restoration efforts in Spring City. New this year Home Tour Tickets may be purchased in advance beginning May 1, 2013.
ART & ANTIQUES SNEAK PEEK AT OLD SCHOOL FRIDAY MAY 24TH 5-8 PM
This year has seen great strides toward finishing the historic Spring City School. The Friends of Historic Spring City are working with the Spring City Corporation to utilize a CIB grant/loan, the loan portion of which the Friends will repay. The grant/low interest loan funds total about $650,000, which will complete the exterior and first floor of the school. Finishes are being selected, earthquake stabilization is being completed, and donations are being made to make the restoration of the old school a realistic goal.
An art and antique sale at the Old Spring City School occurs on Heritage Day (9-4). A silent auction, called “Art Squared,” is held at the school, where patrons bid on one-foot square paintings done by well known Spring City artists including Osral Allred, Lee Bennion, Susan Gallacher, M’Lisa Paulsen, Doug Fryer, Kathleen Peterson, Cassandria Parsons, Lynn Farrar and many other Utah artists (9-2 sharp). The Spring City Suite, a collection of 10 hand-pulled prints by local artists, is also available for sale, and local crafts may also be purchased.
Additional artwork by well-known artists as well as antiques will be available for sale in the Old School and in local galleries. Breakfast (8-10) and lunch (12-1:30) is served at the Spring City bowery and is sponsored by the local LDS ward. The Daughters of Utah Pioneers offer a bake sale at the ticket sites.
New this year for the first time, an early preview of the Art and Antiques is available. Be first in line to buy art and antiques and catch a sneak peek of the Art Squared items on silent auction Saturday May 25th. The cost for this event will be $5 per person. Tickets sold at the door. We hope you'll join us for this new event.
Spring City is just off Highway 89, between Mt. Pleasant and Ephraim. It may be sunny in Spring City while rainy on the Wasatch Front, and the homes and art are lovely, whatever the weather.
