Make the most of Ogden's BIGGEST party of the year!

Posted: 09/09/2019

Due to circumstances related to COVID-19 and our community moving through our color-coded phases of re-opening, there may have been changes to some of the events listed below. Please check with the event to ensure that it is still taking place as indicated.

This year’s Harvest Moon Celebration kicks off on Saturday, September 19 at noon. Now in its 19th year, one of Ogden’s biggest parties is getting even bigger this time around. 

As Ogden says farewell to summer and welcomes fall, Historic 25th Street is packed with family friendly activities, live music, and artisan exhibits.

The day kicks off with the NuHope Walk to raise suicide awareness. Registration begins at the Ogden Amphitheater at 8:30 a.m. The short program and walk begin at 10:00 a.m. with information booths back at the amphitheater from 11:30 to noon.

One of Ogden’s most popular attractions, Social Axe, will be hosting free axe throwing for anyone over 13 until 5:30 p.m. At 5:30, a live Axe Throwing Competition gets underway and is capped at 50 participants. If you’ve never visited them at their physical location on Lincoln Ave., Harvest Moon is the perfect time to give this rapidly growing sport a try.

The climbing wall makes its return this year and is free to climb until 4:00 p.m. A nominal fee is charged between 4:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m.
