Pioneer Trades
Pioneer Trades

See what life was like in the Utah Territory as costumed historic interpreters provide hands-on experiences of pioneer trades. Attendees will have the chance to participate in several trades that will illustrate how men, women, and children spent their day 150 years ago. Participants will be able to test their hand at rope-making, wool carding, and more! While guests work at their trade, they will be entertained with live pioneer folk music played on traditional instruments. Historically good time for pioneers of all ages.
