It’s Time for Ogden Pioneer Days 2022
July 20-25th kicks off the 88th anniversary of Ogden Pioneer Days in Ogden, Utah! This celebration started in 1934 when Ogden City Mayor, Harman W. Peery, wanted to entice tourists to visit the city while boosting local morale. Peery organized a western festival, successfully making it a national attraction within a matter of years! Today it is Utah’s biggest and best state celebration, not to mention, it’s also ranked among the top five largest outdoor rodeos in the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association.
The five-day rodeo includes PRCA-sanctioned bareback riding, team roping, steer wrestling, saddle bronc riding, tie-down roping, barrel racing, and bull riding. Arrive early each day to cheer on the contestants in the Pre-Rodeo which includes mutton busting, Junior Posse Jamboree, horseback musical chairs, and wild cow milking. Show your support for Miss Rodeo Ogden and Miss Rodeo Utah at the Ogden-Eccles Conference Center as they compete for the newly crowned winner. The coronation of Miss Rodeo Utah is July 24th following the rodeo. Head over to the Ogden Pioneer Days website for more exciting festivities happening around town including parade information, firework shows, hall of fame inductee ceremonies, and much more.
