You're invited: Celebrating 100 years of the Utah State Capitol!

In October, our beautiful State Capitol turns 100 years old. To celebrate, the Capitol Preservation Board will host several free programs during the week of October 3-8. Lt. Governor Spencer Cox and I will take part in the festivities and we invite you and your family to attend any of the following free events on your own time:
  1. Displaying Capitol Open HouseOctober 3-79:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Explore the Capitol during extended tour hours, listen to performances by school children and cultural groups in the Rotunda and view rare historical artifacts on display throughout the Capitol. Walk-ins welcome.
  2. Capitol Discovery DayOctober 8, 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. Learn about the Capitol's 100-year history through hands-on arts and crafts in the Hall of Governors. Activities include a scavenger hunt, geodesic dome construction, paper floor mosaics and more! All ages welcome, activity supplies limited and on a first come-first serve basis.
  3. Commemorating a Century GalaOctober 8, 6:00 p.m. Celebrate the 'People's House' with an evening similar to the dedication 100 years ago. Enjoy a formal program in the Rotunda with Gov. Gary R. Herbert, Lt. Governor Cox and legislative leadership, followed by refreshments in the Hall of Governors and a dance exhibition. Attire: Business dress or period clothing.
I hope you can join in the fun! Thank you for your hard work to ensure Utah remains the best place to live, to work and to raise a family.
