About Heritage Festival

Ogden’s Union Station is home of the Heritage Festival. The Heritage Festival is a community driven, cultural celebration. All booths will be open for 1 day and will be located entirely on the Ogden Union Station property. The Heritage Festival hours are 10am to 7pm on Saturday. Live cultural music and dance performances, food, cultural awareness programs, and hands-on science and art activities, complete the festival experience.  This year’s festival will also feature cultural food and artisans that have been carefully selected to show and sell their handcrafted work.  Artisan demonstrations will be ongoing throughout the day. Over 25 local community organizations partner with the Union Station Museums and Union Station Foundation to produce Heritage Festival and share their culture with the community.
