PROVO, Utah, June 2 /PRNewswire/ -- The Utah Valley Convention and Visitors Bureau (UVCVB) has announced its 2010 event lineup for festivals and recreational activities. With many new and returning events, spring and summer of 2010 in Utah Valley are packed with a wide variety of tourism options for those living in or visiting Utah Valley.  

"2010 marks another year of growth for the Utah Valley tourism industry, and we are pleased to welcome Carrie Underwood to the Stadium of Fire in July," said Joel Racker, President and CEO of the UVCVB. "Each spring generates excitement around many upcoming events. Utah Valley tourism continues to grow, and we look forward to another great festival season."

Upcoming events include the annual Strawberry Days in Pleasant Grove, Scottish Festival at Thanksgiving Point, Orem Summerfest, Festival Latinoamericano, Utah Symphony at Sundance Resort, and more.

"Sundance, along with the UVCVB, is committed to creating dynamic and significant experiences for Utah Valley residents and visitors, their voices and ideas," said Lucy Ridolphi, Marketing and PR Manager for Sundance Resort. "Our cultural activities exemplify this commitment. Whether it's enjoying a summer musical performance on our outdoor stage or an afternoon discussion by a bestselling author at the Tree Room Author Series, Sundance offers something for everyone. This intimate community is the perfect escape by being only a moment away but a world apart."

UVCVB research shows that one in three Utah Valley visitors come to visit family and friends. Because of this finding, event planning continues to emphasize strong family-friendly activities. Year-round family activities are held at the Museum of Ancient Life, SCERA Theater, Heber Valley Railroad, Seven Peaks Water Park, and Bridal Veil Falls.  

"Utah Valley truly holds activities for everyone," Racker continued. "The UVCVB is pleased to be an event hub for Utah Valley and a source of information for our many annual events. The UVCVB will continue to work with local communities to provide the best activities Utah Valley has to offer."
