Reasons to Become a Sponsor

A once a year event that brings the community together to celebrate what has made southern Davis County one of the most cherished and desired areas to live.

  • It is an opportunity for all people in the area to come and celebrate the community and to honor those who have made it what it is.
  • The parade is one of the largest in the state.
  • Handcart Days pulls the community together and offers you an opportunity to aide in making this happen.
  • Handcart Days is a qualified 501C(3) organization and all contributions are tax deductible.
  • The activities that draw people together are:
    + Parade
    + Entertainment
    + Food, games and fun at the park

How We Use the Money

100% of the money raised goes directly to fund the celebrations!

Handcart Days is a non-profit corporation that serves southern Davis County with a celebration every July that commemorates the handcart and other pioneers. The celebration brings to mind pioneer's sacrifices, histories, and heritage through friendly, safe, and wholesome activities at affordable prices. Activities include a parade, food, games, and entertainment. Handcart Days helps build a sense of community. Handcart Days is a 100% volunteer–run organization with no paid staff and money raised at the activities and from our sponsors goes 100% to funding its activities in the current and future years.
