Days Of '47 Events, Road Closures

Many special events will be held in Salt Lake City on Saturday and Monday, as Utah celebrates the Pioneer Day holiday. Salt Lake City calls its celebration the Days of '47, referring to the year Mormon pioneers first settled the valley. See this schedule of events for the celebration.

A big parade will take place in Salt Lake City on Monday, and it will affect travel in the downtown area. Roads along the parade route will be closed beginning at 5 am, and will not open until about noon. The route begins at South Temple and State Street and ends at the north entrance to Liberty Park (900 South 600 East).

The Salt Lake Tribune has this article about the road closures. It includes a map.

There will also be a Native American Celebration on Monday in Liberty Park, 1100 S 600 E, Salt Lake City. It will include a PowWow with dancing, food and fireworks. It is held as a community celebration and the public is invited. See details.

See this Salt Lake Tribune article for information about other weekend events.
