SALT LAKE CITY — Organizers of the annual Days of ’47 Parade announced this week that the parade, as well as associated activities, will take place this year.
Those activities will include the Parade and Float Preview Party, Days of ’47 Rodeo, Sunrise Service, Pops Concert, Pioneers of Progress, The First Encampment Hike, and the Deseret News marathon.
In a statement, Lane Summerhays, the president of the Days of ’47 Board, said the events will be subject to state and local COVID-19 requirements.
“We’re excited to continue these beloved Utah traditions,” Summerhays said.
“As with many activities canceled, postponed, or altered in 2020 due to the Covid 19 pandemic, these treasured pioneer traditions were placed on hold. We’re now ready to celebrate our pioneer heritage as we have done for over a century.”
The Days of ’47 Parade will be held Friday, July 23, beginning at 9 a.m. in downtown Salt Lake City and ending at Liberty Park. The Days of ’47 Rodeo is scheduled to be held July 20 through July 24 at the Utah State Fair Park.
