FAQ

You asked, we answered.

The Donut vs. Doughnut debate may be older than the Utah vs. BYU rivalry, but we love both spellings and encourage you to use the one that makes you happiest! We use Donut because it’s shorter to type, and that makes our fingers happy!

Thanksgiving Point’s beautiful Electric Park

We’re honored to support two fantastic Utah charities by donating net proceeds to The Utah 1033 Foundation and The Christmas Box International.

Park on the east side of Electric Park, behind the Megaplex Theater.

You batter believe it! Not only do you get to cast your vote for Utah’s Best Donut, you’ll get to enjoy a live DJ, the Great Wall of Donuts, a photo wall w/fun donut props, merchandise sales, social media contests, giveaways, pro donut judges, and a bunch of other fun stuff!

Utah’s one and only donut festival was created by Bryan Carr and his wife Heather, Utah parents with an “above average” appreciation for donuts. Bryan (aka @DonutsUnplugged) has visited over 250 donut shops across the country, many with Heather and their three kids in tow!

Absolutely! Kids are welcome to attend and can share your samples. If you’d like them to have their own samples, they’ll need their own ticket.

You bet! Please fill out the form on our Sponsor page and we’ll be in touch!
