Days of '47 Cowboy Games & Rodeo Volunteer Application

Application Information
Thank you for your interest in becoming a volunteer for "The Posse".

The Days of ‘47 Cowboy Games & Rodeo is one of Utah’s longest-standing traditions celebrating Utah’s heritage since 1857. The rodeo, and other Days of ‘47 events, commemorate the day July 24, 1847 when a determined company of Mormon pioneers realized their dreams upon entering the Great Salt Valley.

This year, the Days of '47 Cowboy Games & Rodeo will be held from July 19th - 24th.

Our Volunteers are essential in creating this sense of community and heritage! The Days of ’47 Posse will be comprised of hard working volunteers from groups in the Salt Lake City community. Days of ‘47 promises to provide each volunteer with the tools, support, and training needed to effectively complete the expected tasks, and to be available as a resource for issues and questions leading up to and during the rodeo.

It is the goal of the Days of ’47 Cowboy Games & Rodeo Committee to create a longstanding relationship with the Days of ’47 Posse. To build this partnership, there will be planning meetings in the months leading up to the event, along with an Awards Dinner in June for all of its volunteers to be recognized for their hard work and dedication.
