The Strawberry Days festival is the longest continually running festival in Utah. This annual celebration got its name from the time when strawberries were part of the city's commerce during the summer months. Today, there are few strawberries involved, but there are many other fun activities for families and others to enjoy. The festival’s highlight is a rodeo that draws in spectators and participants from all around the area. However, the festival has numerous sporting and recreational attractions, including baseball tournaments, swim meets, tennis, and children's art show. The festival is an ideal opportunity for community members to connect, relax, and celebrate their city together.
