Ogden, Utah—The Junior League of Ogden will be hosting a farmer’s market and music festival every Thursday in August at the Oasis Community Garden. The garden is located at 2445 Monroe Avenue in Ogden.
In its sixth year, Oasis Summer Nights is a community event that includes a mini farmer’s market and live music every Thursday in August from 6:00 to 8:00 pm. There is no cost to attend. There will be family-friendly activities, yoga, craft vendors, local products and live entertainment.

August 10th: Marny Lion Proudfit
August 17th: The Wednesday People
August 24th: Default Minds and Imagine Music

Oasis Summer Nights is a way for the community to enjoy the 1.7-acre space that started as a project in 2002 for the Junior League of Ogden. Once an inner-city lot, the Oasis Community Garden has flourished into a grassy lawn with 38 plots of a lush array of vegetation.
Coinciding with our first Oasis Summer Night, on August 3rd, the Junior League of Ogden will gather with those interested in learning more about the JLO. The non-profit organization is committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women and improving the community through effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.
