Military Appreciation Day 2019


Each year Utah State Parks designates the second Saturday in August as Military Appreciation Day. As part of the celebration, all Utah State Parks will offer free day-use entrance for active military, veterans, and their family.

Frontier Homestead State Park is joining in with fun for people of all ages. From 10:00 to 2:00 hands-on activities such as rope making and semaphore will be available. The activities will change each hour.

Those who joined us last year may remember our little men. They return this year with a new treasure hunt. Follow the trail of clues around the park to get a sweet reward.


These special activities are available to all. For those who aren’t members of the military the cost is just $5 for a family during the event.

The park will be open before and after the hands-on activities so if you can’t make it between 10:00 and 2:00, come enjoy the museum and self-directed activities.

This is also a good time to check out the Honor Pass, which can be picked up at Frontier Homestead State Park. Qualifications for the Honor Pass include being a Utah resident, being honorably discharged, and having a service-related disability rating of 50% or greater.
