About Us

As Utah’s premier annual donut festival, the Utah Dough Show brings local donut shops, bakeries, and coffee shops together under one roof for you to taste! Every ticket holder gets a sample from every vendor, which means you can literally try 20 Utah donut shops in one place!

Here’s the best part – net proceeds from the Utah Dough Show are donated to two Utah-based charities: The Utah 1033 Foundation and The Christmas Box International. In 2019, the first annual Utah Dough Show raised over $10,000, making our slogan “Eat Dough to Raise Dough” sound even sweeter!

FAQ

You asked, we answered.

The Donut vs. Doughnut debate may be older than Utah vs. BYU, 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!

The 2019 Utah Dough Show featured 20 donut shops alongside coffee, kolaches, custom cookies, and churros. We’re planing on the same or more vendors for 2020!

Your ticket guarantees you a sample from EVERY vendor. Donut samples are a minimum of 1/4 of a donut, or equivalent, but many of our 2019 vendors gave MUCH more! Beverage samples are also included with your Utah Dough Show admission.

Sorry, no wheelbarrows or wagons allowed.

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 200 donut shops across the country, many with Heather and their three kids in tow!

Absolutely! Kids 3 and under are free and will share your samples. Kids 4 and up are welcome to attend but must have their own ticket to enter and get samples. Where possible, please try to limit the use of strollers, wagons, or wheelbarrows inside the venue.
