Pioneer Day Celebrations

July 24 is Pioneer Day in Utah. It is a state holiday and so many businesses and government offices will be closed.

Communities throughout the state will host parades, rodeos, firework displays, pancake breakfasts and other events. Visitors are always welcome to join the festivities.

A major celebration, called Days of ’47, is held in the greater Salt Lake City area. It honors the Mormon Pioneers and other early settlers. The festival’s horse parade, children’s parade and marathon are favorite activities.
