Welcome back to our world-famous Ogden Pioneer Days rodeo!
Every summer since 1934, the Ogden Pioneer Days Foundation has celebrated the lives of our pioneer ancestors and our western way of life. Our heartfelt passion, every July, is to remember those noble souls who came to this great valley in 1847 and built a strong and vibrant community.
With this in mind, our organization is pleased to present, once again, numerous cultural, social and educational events to honor the memory of our pioneer forebears and the spirit of the American West.
We anticipate that record numbers of fans will attend the rodeo and other Pioneer Days events this year—and look forward to reaching our capacity every night.
Scores of professional cowboys and cowgirls will be back in Ogden to show us why they’re the top athlete in their sport. Stace Smith’s award-winning livestock will be ready to challenge every contestant. And to top it off, our favorite announcer Roger Mooney will call the action.
I express special thanks to eighteen different Ogden Pioneer Days committees and hundreds of volunteers who spend countless hours preparing for and managing the events.
In addition, we express our gratitude to numerous dedicated sponsors and donors who all make this celebration possible.
This year, Ogden Pioneer Days rodeo will recognize and honor our local educators, first responders, our military forces, the American cowboy and the founders of Utah.
