Winner

Sundance Film Festival • The most prominent, most important film festival in the United States is right in our backyard. You can make your way up to Park City and, perhaps, hobnob with the stars. Or at least go star-gazing. If you're a film buff, it's nirvana. And you don't even have to go to Park City, because there are screenings in Salt Lake City and Ogden as well. It also has put Utah and Park City on the map in the entertainment industry, focusing Hollywood's attention here for a couple of weeks in January every year.

First runner-up

Utah Arts Festival • Plenty to do; lots to eat; great entertainment; lots of heat.

Second runner-up

Utah Shakespeare Festival • Forsooth — high-quality, Tony-winning entertainment in Cedar City.
