July 24th Holiday Events In Utah
July 24th is a big holiday in Utah. It is called Pioneer Day and commemorates the arrival of the Mormon pioneers to the Salt Lake Valley. There will be festivities in many communities around Utah, with most activities taking place next Thursday (the 24th).
Many businesses will be closed for the holiday.
Salt Lake City hosts a massive celebration called the “Days of '47.” It takes place over several days and offers many fun activities related to Western America, pioneers and frontier life. The festival provided the overview below. See the official website for more details.
