Ogden Pioneer Days | Rodeo | 24th of July Events in Utah

So, what exactly is there to do on the 24th of July? It's a UTAH only holiday right?

(To see other Ogden Murals, check out our post here.)

Stephanie is sharing the Ogden Rodeo and then Coupons4Utah has a giant list of things to do all over Utah on the 24th of July. (Check link below.)

The Rodeo is one of my favorite summer activities. We haven't been for a few years because apparently we keep having babies, but tonight we made it happen. 

It is usually scorching hot! And there is no shade, but this night was absolutely perfect and I even wished I had a blanket at then end.

Pre-Rodeo starts at 6:30, this is a must for the kids.

They do awesome stuff like mutton bustin' and musical chairs, minus the chairs and add horses.


The barrel races are my favorite. You know, just living vicariously through those ladies. I've always wanted to be in a rodeo.

Then they save the bulls for last. They are massive beasts. Luckily, no one was hurt.


This is an all night affair.

Be prepared to spend astronomical amounts of money on food and drinks. We ate before we came but still, by 10 pm, everyone was ready for forth meal.

We ended up leaving half way through the bulls because it was 10:30 and they kids were tired. Or maybe the littlest kid and mom was tired

Rodeo runs July 20th-24th with a parade the morning of the 24th on Washington. We go every year! Its a good one.
