The main financial support of the monastery is the Annual Fair, which is normally held on the third Sunday in September (September 21, 2014) from 11:00a.m. to 5:00p.m.

We have many ethnic foods such as Mexican food, Italian food, and Asian Cuisine as well as burgers and hot dogs, and ice cream. In addition to the wonderful food, every hour there is entertainment such as Live Auction, Utah Basque Dancers, Utah Pipe Band, the OPA Greek Dancers, The Venezuelan dancers and the Chinese Lion Dance. You and your children will be very pleased with all of the activities we offer at the fair.

There are rides and games of all sorts for the children. There are handicraft items made by the Sisters and friends of the Community. Each year we have approximately 4000 patrons come to the fair and our volunteer work force reaches around 300 people of all ages. Part of the entertainment consists in one hour of Live Auction. The prizes are beautiful hand-made art works by the nuns and donations of gift certificates and items from businesses in the Salt Lake area and Park City areas. We have also added a silent auction which goes on all day and is very popular.

The behind-the-scenes activity in getting ready for the fair requires many hours for a week before and a week afterwards for clean-up. All able-bodied persons are welcome to participate in this activity. The Set-up begins this year on Tuesday, September 16th at 9am and everyday thereafter from 9am to sunset.

This year besides the beautiful automobile 2014 Kia Soul offered as our special Prize Giveaway, the Carmelite Fair proudly presents many interesting and popular items such as the popular silver 50 cc Maui Dreamer 4-Stroke Moped Scooter, an Apple iPad, jewelry set, $300.00 cash, and many more unique items listed for Live and Silent Auctions.
