Kolache Festival in Heber City

Main Street Kolaches in Heber City will hold a party to celebrate the opening of its renovated drive-thru and the addition of a coffee and "dirty" drink (sodas mixed with flavorings) menu. Kolaches, which originated in the Czech Republic, are made with a sweet, yeasty egg dough and filled with sweet and savory ingredients. In October, sisters Sierra McCleve and Jessica Sonderegger opened Main Street Kolaches in a former frozen-yogurt shop on Heber City’s Main Street. Their festival includes an 8 a.m. ribbon-cutting ceremony where guests can enjoy free samples of kolaches and smoothies. Food and drink specials will be available throughout the rest of the day.
