Zion Celebrates Centennial
Zion National Park is the most visited of Utah’s Mighty 5® national parks and this year celebrates its 100th anniversary. Zion Canyon was first protected as Mukuntuweap National Monument in 1909. After creation of the National Park Service in 1916, Zion officially became a national park in 1919. Sharing its Centennial with Grand Canyon National Park, Zion will celebrate with several events and activities planned throughout the year, including National Park Fee Free Days.

Pantone Colour of the Year
Pantone named “Living Coral” as the 2019 colour of the year. It’s the colour of Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park located in Kanab, UT; one of 44 state parks throughout Utah. Visitors to the park can literally experience Living Coral in living colour. Sandboarding and ATV tours with Coral Pink ATV Tours are the most popular means of exploring the hues of orange, pink and red that make the Southern Utah landscape so special.

Return of The Supper Club
Originating in the 1930s, the supper club is making a roaring comeback in Utah. Diners take part in an intellectually stimulating, cozy dining experience with friends both old and new, often at a location they’ve never been to before – a historical home, art studio, someone’s backyard, the middle of a forest, or the top of a mountain. From Savor the Summit in June; to the Bear Claw Supper Club atop Sundance Resort in July and August; to year-round dining experiences hosted by Supper Club Salt Lake City and the Sunday Supper Club at Powder Mountain, Utah has a pop-up dining experience for every taste. For more information visit www.utahbusiness.com/the-return-of-the-supper-club.
One of the most iconic and modernizing events in the United States’ history was the completion of the Transcontinental Railroad in Utah on May 10, 1869. The 150th anniversary of driving the ceremonially last spike at Promontory Summit in Northern Utah will take place at the Golden Spike National Historic Site over the May 10th weekend. Tickets for “Spike 150” go on sale April 1st and celebrations continue throughout the summer.
