Utah's celebration of Pioneer Day won't be complete without a visit to This Is The Place Heritage Park! In addition of our everyday line-up of FUN, we add even more on this special day we celebrate the founding of UTAH!

Your entire family will have a blast! Really! Our Candy Cannon heralds the day with a BANG! It's raining old-fashioned taffy down Main Street when the Candy Cannon fires away.

Native American dancing is a crowd favorite all summer long, but on Pioneer Day we have an extra spectacular show planned in the Bowery.

There will be games galore! Come prepared to play with us and take home some new family memories!

The celebration wouldn't be complete without enjoying the everyday activities: panning for gold, riding ponies and trains, enjoying art and craft projects, digging in Prospectors Pit, and much more.

Join the Pioneer Parade down Main Street, and when you smell those Brigham's Donuts duck inside the Social Hall and have yourself a little bit of sugary heaven! But save a little room, as you'll want to see if you can triumph at the Watermelon Eating Contest!

Lunch will be served at the Huntsman Grill and it's bound to be hot hot hot so cool off in Irrigation Station or with a giant Flavor Burst Ice cream cone from the Ice Cream Shop.

Everyone is welcome!
