Ogden Pioneer Days Nationally Recognized for Excellence


Ogden Pioneer Days is forever part of the Class of 2017 — for the ProRodeo Hall of Fame.  Two years ago, Ogden Pioneer Days Rodeo, held each year the week of July 24, was inducted into the famed hall in Colorado Springs, Colo., along such rodeo greats as Charmayne James and Buck Rutherford. “This rodeo was started right after the Great Depression because the community needed it,” said Dave Halverson, Ogden Pioneer Days’ Rodeo Director. “You do what you do, and you that that someday you get the call. But we don’t do this for the notoriety, we do it for the community and the state of Utah.” The Ogden Pioneer Days Rodeo not only is one of the biggest and best statehood celebrations in Utah, but for multiple years has been named on the top five large outdoor rodeos in the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association. 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. While the stadium is historic, vast improvements have been made throughout the years, and none are more significant than the project completed in time for this year's rodeo. A new northside grandstand has been outfitted with thousands of stadium seats that once were used in the Utah Jazz's Vivint Smart Home Arena. The seats were a gift from the Utah Jazz organization to Ogden. The new grandstands and seating are all possible due to contributions totaling about $1.3 million. Among the donors were the Larry H. Miller and Gail Miller Family Foundation, the George S. and Delores Doré Eccles Foundation, Weber County RAMP, Ogden City, Wadman Corporation and Ogden Pioneer Days Foundation. Next up: In the coming years, more stadium seating will be installed in other parts of Ogden Pioneer Stadium — all done in an effort to make the Pioneer Days celebration even better for the fans.
