Mountain Bike Festival, Chocolate and Cheese Fest



Chocolate & Cheese Fest
Who doesn't need chocolate after that Utah legislative session? The Natural History Museum of Utah placed its annual Chocolate & Cheese Festival at the perfect time, so if you've had your fill of idiocy, you can drown your sorrows in your favorite foods. NHMU will have a variety of workshops including Chocolate Tasting 101 with Matt Caputo and Cheese Tasting 101 with Mariah Christensen, director of specialty cheeses for Harmons. You should pre-register for workshops—including some for kids—which sell out fast. Natural History Museum of Utah, 301 Wakara Way, 801-581-6927, March 19, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.; March 20, 10 a.m.-5 p.m., regular admission, NHMU.Utah.edu

Mountain Bike Festival
Get pumped for the sixth annual Hurricane Mountain Bike Festival, a three-day event with one-of-a-kind riding trails hosted by Over the Edge Sports, from March 18-March 20. The weekend will include special riding trails, live entertainment, games, prizes, pancake breakfasts, a Dutch-oven dinner and a beer garden. Ever heard of a "pump track?" It's a new recreational activity for parents and kids. Instead of pedaling, riders use an up-and-down pumping motion to propel the bicycle forward—ideal for practicing balance and improving confidence on the bike.Hurricane Community Center, 63 S. 100 West, Hurricane, 435-635-5455, March 18-20, $55 festival pass, HurricaneMtBFestival.com

T-Shirt Design Contest

Up to four winning designs will be reproduced on hundreds of T-shirts, to be sold at Library Square during the 40th anniversary festival. Each individual who enters will receive two tickets to the 2016 festival, and the winning designers will be awarded bragging rights plus eight individual 2016 tickets and two "Friends for a Day" passes.
