The Utah Shakespeare Festival presents life-affirming classic and contemporary plays in repertory, with Shakespeare as our cornerstone. These plays are enhanced by interactive festival experiences which entertain, enrich, and educate.
The Utah Shakespeare Festival is part of Southern Utah University, a relationship that has helped foster the growth and viability of the Festival for over fifty years.
Southern Utah University's more than 150 undergraduate and nine graduate programs across six academic colleges are fully accredited, but the university is much more than classrooms and textbooks. SUU is the only university in Utah to guarantee every one of our 8,000 students will graduate with a diploma and field experience, through internships, undergraduate research, or study abroad. The philosophy at the university is that four years of tuition should get you a job you love, not just a fancy piece of paper.
Every summer Cedar Breaks exhibits a spectacular display of wildflowers. Early bloomers such as cushion phlox, kittentails, and aspen bluebells emerge in late June. Displays peak in mid-July as countless other wildflowers bloom: scarlet paintbrushes, Colorado columbines, little sunflowers, elkweeds, and many more fill the forests and meadows with color.
Every year Cedar Breaks celebrates this colorful show with an annual Wildflower Festival. Join a specialist on a guided hike and learn all about the different wildflowers. Guided hikes are offered twice daily and meet at the Visitor Center at 10:00 am and 1:00 pm. You can also pick up a common wildflower checklist or a "What's In Bloom" handout and go on a self-guided walk. Family-friendly activities are available on weekends from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm in the Visitor Center area. Also check our Upcoming Events Calendar for special events and activities.
