Days of '47 Rodeo

Enjoy One of Utah's Biggest Rodeos


Utah Pioneer Day celebrates the arrival of the first settlers into northern Utah, and the Salt Lake Valley.

Utah Pioneer Day is typically a weeklong celebration with parades, a marathon, a youth festival, and even a commemoration concert – culminating in the Days of ’47 Rodeo finals.

The Days of ’47 Rodeo is a fully sanctioned Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) event, spanning four days. Held at the Maverik Center, just 15 miles from downtown Salt Lake City, and only 20 minutes from the city of Sandy. The Days of ’47 Rodeo features bull riding, barrel racing, bareback riding and bronc riding, and steer wrestling.

A local tradition, the Days of ’47 Rodeo thrives on the state-pride many Utahns exhibit. Nearby cities like Tooele, and Park City are in for a real treat – the Days of ’47 Rodeo has been a staple of Utah Pioneer Day celebrations since 1849, the year of the very first celebration rodeo.

Although very different at the beginning – it was originally called “Covered Wagon Days” – the Days of ’47 Rodeo has evolved into a nearly weeklong event, with top riders and ropers from across the country supplying the entertainment, and all vying for over $200,000 in prize money.
