Celebrating our Pioneers


Pioneer Day celebrates the original pioneers who struggled and hoped and dreamed of a place where they could build upon their faith. It is celebrated on the 24th of July each year.  This is the day that the first pioneers, led by Brigham Young, entered the Salt Lake Valley.
