Ogden Pioneer Days – Ogden, UT

July 20, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - July 24, 2021 @ 9:00 pm

Cowboys and cowgirls, you’re not going to want to miss this year’s Ogden Pioneer Days rodeo. It’s been nationally recognized as one of the Top 5 PRCA Rodeos in the Nation. And in 2017 it was inducted into the ProRodeo Hall of Fame. Ogden Pioneer Days draws more than 30,000 annually to its PRCA rodeo at the historic Ogden Pioneer Stadium, 668 17th St., where the rodeo started in 1934 and where the feeling of the American west still lives.

National Day of the Cowboy & First Responders Appreciation Night
Wednesday, July 21

Each July, on the National Day of the American Cowboy, cowboys and cowgirls from across the United States are honored for their contributions to promoting and preserving the cowboy way of life. Ogden Pioneer Days continues that tradition by honoring Utahns from every county who, day by day, honor their western heritages. The honorees are invited into the arena at the start of the rodeo and applauded by the thousands who are at Ogden Pioneer Stadium, judged as one of the top five large outdoor rodeos in the PRCA. This year will be extra special as we also kick up our heels for our courageous, hard-working, healthcare professionals. These brave souls helped to carry our country through the heart-wrenching impact on our society during the COVID-19 pandemic. And while we pay forward our deepest gratitude, let’s be sure to remember those whose lives were lost during this most challenging time.


8:00 a.m.  July 24

The parade is planned to start at 28th and Washington.


9:00 a.m.  July 24

The commemoration of Utah’s statehood starts with Ogden Pioneer Days’ Grand Parade, which runs through the heart of Ogden City. The parade route begins on 31st Street, continues northbound on Washington Boulevard and ends on 20th Street. Thousands of spectators line up along Washington Boulevard to cheer for marching bands, service organizations, student body representatives from Ogden-area schools, floats, horse drawn carriages, antique automobiles, and youth dance groups.
