Every January, sheepherders and their families from across western Utah and eastern Nevada converge at the state line for a weekend of comradery. But the event is more than mere reminiscing: the Gathering is a venue for passion history to younger generations and sharing a bit of sheep industry culture with the non-initiated.
The mission of the Old Capitol Storytelling Festival is to encourage and enable the artful telling of the stories of the Utah Territory of the 1850’s, including its prehistoric past, its indigenous peoples, and its contemporary concerns.

Snake Valley Market
Come and meet local artists, farmers, cooks and photographers who meet every “seasonal” Saturday next to the Community Church to sell local produce, artwork, baked goodies and other arts and crafts.
Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA) is proposing to construct an 84-inch, 300-mile pipeline from eastern Nevada to Las Vegas. The Snake Valley Festival is held once a year to raise funds to help protect our desert ecosystem from this “water grab”. For more information please visit Great Basin Water Network.
