The roots of the festival are grounded in the arts and it remains a showcase for artists. The international and cultural performances were included to give local residents a unique entertainment and educational experience that stands out as an exciting addition to the community and is unequaled by any other art and cultural program in the state.
In 2008 Bountiful/Davis Summerfest International welcomed the first annual Internationale Organisation für Volkskunst (IOV International Organization for People Art) World Youth Congress entitled: Protecting and Preserving our Intangible Cultural Heritage.The Congress was hosted in conjunction with the 20th Anniversary of Summerfest International. The festival, along with the IOV Congress, was a great success that brought many cultures from distant parts of the world together to appreciate art and culture.
It’s no secret that Summerfest is bursting with pride over its volunteer community
