Kanab’s local Outdoor Farmers Market

 

Picture this:

  • A perfect warm summer evening
  • A lush green park surrounded by beautiful red cliffs
  • Delightful live bluegrass music by a local family band
  • Families playing soccer on the grass
  • Friends and neighbors chatting in the shade
  • Kids playing in the splash pad water fountains
  • Vendor booths with:

    Homemade jams and jellies Fresh cage-free chicken eggs Hand processed essential oil and hydrosol from native desert plants (Sagebrush and Juniper Berry are my favorites!) Fresh garden greens Homemade muffins and baklava Unique Hot sauces from local peppers and cactus Fresh herb plants for the garden Local American Indian history books from local authors   OK, these are just a few of things you might find…..
   Welcome to Saturday evenings in Kanab. This literally was how we spent last Saturday, and hope to spend the rest of the Saturday evenings this summer. Kanab’s Outdoor Farmers Market has taken on several forms over the last few years but I think this new move to the park is a winner! With live music every Market night, the park is a magical place to be. Even though we are early in the growing season, there were unique and interesting booths to discover. We had a great visit with Kato who has worked at the Glen Canyon Dam for 20 years. As he looks forward to retirement he is building his own Hot Sauce Brand. One made from Prickly Pear cactus!     Carol, the curator of the Maynard Dixon Museum has produced a beautiful photo book of Native Americans taken by the John Wesley Powell expedition in the 1870’s. Paul and Liz are on an organic journey to bring all the natural goodness mother earth has to offer, as they distill their own essential oil for soaps and hydrosols. All from local desert plants like Pinion Pine, Chaparral, Juniper berry, and Sagebrush. Marty does amazing photography of the local landscape. The Wave and White Pockets never looked so good. Pam’s Jellies and Jams also makes homemade treats that cater to Keto and gluten-free. Even though the market is the main event, We enjoyed just sitting down to enjoy the music and watch the kids play! The vendors will come and go, change and rotate throughout the season, but I’m sure there will always be something at Kanabs Outdoor Market to tickle your fancy, and your taste buds!

5-8pm – Jacob Hamblin Park, Kanab Utah

Little Hollywood Shootout – Kanab Utah

Little Hollywood Shootout – Kanab Utah

Quick-turnaround film competition. Starts at High noon April 4th

The unmistakable scenery of the Kanab area has made this part of southern Utah a favorite destination for filmmakers since the 1930’s. Building on this filmmaking history, the annual “Little Hollywood Shootout,” is taking place at the historic Parry Lodge in Kanab, Utah starting on April 4, 2018. The “shootout” is a quick-turnaround film competition offering filmmakers the challenge of producing a short film with Kanab locations as the backdrop.

A fun video from last year – wrong dates for this year though –

Teams will have 49.5 hours to write, direct, edit, and complete a short five-minute film. Film submissions are due at 1:30 pm on Friday, April 6, 2018 either in person or online. The shootout films will then be premiered at a community screening and awards ceremony in the evening on Saturday, April 7, 2018 at the Crescent Moon Theater in Kanab.

Prospective filmmakers of all ages from beginners to veterans are invited to take part in the challenge. Primary filming locations are required to take place in Kane County but editing and post-production can take place at the participants desired location. Two divisions are available for participants with one category intended for novice filmmakers of all ages looking to gain experience and the other division is designed for competitors who have experience in film production.

Community members and participants are strongly encouraged and invited to attend the screening and awards ceremony. For more information about the Little Hollywood Shootout or to register your team, visit www.littlehollywoodshootout.org or call 435-899-0443.
