Butlerville Days


Mark your calendars for the week of July 24. Butlerville Days is the biggest party in Cottonwood Heights! Every Pioneer Day (July 24), we celebrate the founders of this area with a city celebration. You'll find a parade, food, games, live entertainment and more! The parade travels along 2700 East from Fort Union to Bengal Boulevard. Other festivities go on at Butler Park behind the Cottonwood Heights Recreation Center. In 2014, we added a 5k run/walk.
Come join in the fun, and stay informed as we plan next year's party!


Butlerville Days 2015 needs your help!

Do you love the parade or do you have a passion of helping people? The committee is looking for volunteers who want to make Butlerville Days the best it’s ever been.  We’re looking for a Parade Chair, Children’s Parade Chair and Information Booth Chair. If you have any interest in volunteering please contact City Events Coordinator Ann Eatchel at or 801-550-8225.
