Events Division

Cedar City Events Division promotes, recruits, develops, and facilitates events that have a positive economic impact and support the community's cultural standards. As part of the Cedar City Economic Development department, the Events Division develops a series of events to support the Festival City USA brand, playing a critical role in promoting Cedar City's assets and facilities with research-driven marketing, premium content, strategic partnerships, and a strong community volunteer base. Four main areas exist for the division.

  • Event Promotion
  • Event Recruitment
  • Event Development
  • Event Facilitation


To provide Cedar City a diversity of outstanding experiences that increase overall visitation, raise Festival City brand awareness, and, ultimately, fulfill the visionary roadmap set in place by Cedar City's culture and heritage.
