Bear Lake Raspberry Days
August 1@10:00 am-August 3@6:00 pm
Bear Lake Valley is known for its bountiful and completely delicious raspberry harvest that occurs in early August.
Valley residents and visitors come together every year to celebrate this bountiful harvest at Bear Lake Raspberry Days.
A Thursday parade kicks off Raspberry Days, and you’ll be surprised at how many people line Main Street in Garden City to get a great spot.
The parade is filled with floats, marching bands, antique cars, drill teams, and more. The participants in the parade usually have bags and bags of candy and beads, which are thrown into the crowds as they make their way down the parade route, so be sure your kids are prepared with a large bag to collect all the goods.
After the parade, people flock to the Fair, held at Heritage Park in Garden City. The Fair has craft booths, rides for kids, food vendors, and live music all day long. Other activities may include Bingo, a 5k fun run, and a golf scramble. And of course, Bear Lake’s famous raspberry shake is available at the fair.
Unique to Raspberry Days is the Boat Light Parade on Bear Lake, which begins at Blue Water Beach and ends at Bear Lake State Park Marina. At this parade, boats are decorated with lights, and it’s definitely a sight to see!
Raspberry Days is capped off with a round of fireworks best viewed from Heritage Park.
