    Sugar Days 2017 Participants Promo Info

    Sugar Days was first known as Founders’ Day and celebrated on the plaza by the newly dedicated Sugar House Monument. On April 23rd, 1854 Margaret Smoot gave the name “Sugar House” to the southeast district of the city. In 1948, local residents and merchants began the tradition of celebrating that date as the community’s birthday.

    After 1950, the festivities grew into lavish affairs, lasting for days. There were parades with marching bands and floats, fashion shows, a contest to select the year’s Miss Sugar House, and, of course, sales promotions. The most popular of these was the tradition of giving away sugar with every purchase from participating businesses. One year, the Chamber of Commerce built a replica of the original Sugar Mill on the plaza. They held a contest to guess the number of sugar boxes that it would hold. The winner received a ten-store shopping spree. The last big celebration of Sugar Days was in 2004, when the 150th anniversary was observed with a children’s parade through Fairmont Park and a time capsule filled with mementos of the year.

    This year Sugar Days will be celebrated in conjunction with Sample Sugar House, where restaurants will be offering special menus at a reduced price, from April 21-29.
