We have exciting things planned for the 2013 version of The Days of ’47 celebration, from the Royalty Pageant and Parade, to the Rodeo and all the other colorful events. Our 2013 celebration will be full of thrills and spills. Schedule your summer plans to take advantage of our many activities — most of which are free to the public. Grab your hat, pull on those boots and c’mon down!
As a brief introduction, let’s talk about our two premier events:
As we have done for generations, The Days of ’47 Rodeo will bring you plenty of bucking broncos, fiesty cowboys and racing cowgirls beginning on July 19th through the 24th (except Sunday). Did you hear — we’re scheduling great new acts and this will be the best year yet at the Rodeo! Join us to watch the fast action.
Guess what! We’re returning to EnergySolutions Arena in 2013. You will not want to miss the large arena and great crowds. Take advantage of the increased Rodeo Committee purse which means more competitors will join us — making this a superior competition and a rodeo to remember. Tickets are on sale now at EnergySolutions Box Office in person or you can go online. Click here for the link to purchase tickets online.
The Days of ’47 KSL 5 Parade will be held on Wednesday, July 24, 2013, in downtown Salt Lake City beginning at 9:00 am. For a new adventure, bring the kids, the sleeping bags and the hot dogs downtown on the evening of the 23rd. You can camp out on Salt Lake City streets along the route that evening. This is the biggest sleepover your family and friends will ever experience! Remember to bring enough water to keep everyone hydrated.
