SOME FACTS AND HISTORY ABOUT PIONEER DAY

The holiday was originally created to remember the date when Brigham Young and his Mormon followers first entered Salt Lake City on July 24th, 1847.  The date has been remembered by Mormon's around the world and is celebrated every year on July 24th.  The holiday has also been called "Covered Wagon Day" and "Days of '47."  The celebrations each year usually include a festival and are based on an Old West/Pioneer theme.
