Annual Events in Central Utah

Celebration in Moab, Nephi & More


Bikes, rodeos, and colorful county fairs – that’s what visitors of central Utah can look forward to.

Mid Utah yields lively cities like Moab, Nephi, and Richfield – along with the scenic backgrounds of Arches National Park, coupled with some gorgeous weather.

What better way to explore the stunning city of Moab than on two wheels? Held in late October, the Moab Ho-Down Mountain Bike Festival and Film Festival features the Moab Ho-Down Dirt Jump Jam, the Ridiculous Costume Party, and the Mountain Bike Film Festival – featuring independent mountain biking footage. Sponsored by the local Chile Pepper Bike Shop, the festival also showcases bike races, award ceremonies, and the Hot Pepper Eating Contest.

Even though it's the 21st century, central Utah is still part of the Old West – and what better way to remind us of this than an old-fashioned rodeo? Head to Nephi along Interstate 15 for the Ute Stampede Rodeo during the second week of July.

Established in 1934, the Ute Stampede Rodeo is home to a PRCA rodeo – featuring bareback riding, steer wrestling, bull riding, and women’s barrel racing. Other events include a car show, poker run, baby contest, and the anticipated triple parade schedule – the Western, the Mammoth, and the Bathing Beauty, all in City Park.

Neighboring the Fishlake National Forest, the town of Richfield is home to the Sevier County Fair – an event for families if ever there was one. Held at the Sevier County Fairgrounds, this free fair features a demolition derby, a RMPRA Rodeo, 4-H exhibits, and a FMX Motocross Show.

Don’t miss the Bowling Pin Contest, Dukes Dogs Hot Dog Cooking Contest, or the Rock Crawl this year at the Sevier County Fair.
