On July 24, Cottonwood Heights hosted its tenth annual Butlerville Days celebration, and we enjoyed every minute of it! Despite the heat, thousands of community members and volunteers turned out to help us celebrate the early days of our history and our city.


The Butlerville Days Committee Chair Mike Hanson and Vice Chair Jamie Jackson took on the task of creating new events to mark the tenth annual celebration. They decided to turn Butlerville Days into a two-day event, a decision which proved to be a hit with our residents. This year, we enjoyed a movie in the park on the night of July 23, complete with food vendors and inflatable rides. The next morning, nearly 150 people participated in the first-ever Butlerville Days 5K, followed by the annual parade and the main event at Butler Park.

Overall, the celebration was amazing and everyone at the city would like to thank all those who participated, especially the 100 volunteers and staff who made the event a success.
