Summerfest is now Oremfest
City Councilmember Debby Lauret released the big news that after 51 years of Summerfest celebrations in Orem, the name of everyone’s favorite summertime event is changing to Oremfest.
She explained that in the late Summer of 2022, we received a cease and desist letter from the Summerfest organization in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. They claimed they owned the trademake to all things Summerfest and Orem could either sign a licensing agreement or change the name of our event.
After considering all of our options, the Orem City Council and Summerfest Committee chose to rename the event Oremfest.
It will take some getting used to but it is honestly a better name for an event that celebrates all things Orem. Everybody has Summer, but only we have Orem.
