Kick Off Summer at WEST HAVEN HERITAGE DAYS!
The 2022 West Haven Heritage Days kicks off the summer with a bang! Heritage Days is one of the first municipal festivals of the season and sets a high bar for other to follow. This year, the celebration runs from June 22nd to June 25th with the theme of “Back to the 80s!” Many favorite events are back and better than ever with new ones being added to keep things running strong. As always, West Haven is proud to feature one of the last remaining free-to-the-public rodeo events in Utah. The City is proud of its roots and the attendance at the rodeo echoes that sentiment through the community.
Wednesday, June 22nd will start the party with the swim party at the Roy Aquatic Center. While the event is free to residents, tickets are required and has always been a sale out event.
Thursday, June 23rd sees the events start up at the R. Kenneth Baldwin Country Park. The Youth Rodeo starts up at the arena as other events run through the evening. These include the Baby Contest, the Picnic Dinner, and finally the Movie in the Park.
Friday, June 24th features one of the best car shows in northern Utah. 500 cars usually come together bringing enthusiasts from antique autos to the newest and shiniest of decked out cars into the park. The annual “Burn Out” contest and the “Loud and Proud” competition is a thrill to participate in and observe. Food Vendors add to the fun events with great food and merchandise.
Saturday, June 25th starts with a Sunrise Color Run and the Annual Parade. These activities bring the crowds to the Country Park again where a traditional Flapjack Breakfast is served. New additions to Saturday’s schedule in 2022 look to engage families and individuals during the day. 2022 will see the City’s first pickleball tournaments, spikeball tournaments, and Super Saturday activities. The Adult Rodeo kicks in during the afternoon and through the evening. With great bucking stock, twisting bulls, roping and barrel racing at its finest. The concert in the park will see the return of Ryan Shupe & the Rubber Band which was an incredible hit last year. These all lead up to one of the best firework displays in Weber County, choreographed to music and featuring some of the best displays you will see.
So, mark your calendars now. Come on down to West Haven for a visit and let us start your summer off right!
