Now more than ever our community looks forward to reconnecting socially at a safe distance. 2020 Heritage Days Reinvented is a completley different approach to bringing our community together to celebrate who we are.
While the large scale mass gathering events like the Family Festivities Carnival, Children’s Theatre production, Parade and Fireworks show will NOT happen this year, we have created some replacement events that will be possible regardless of an orange or yellow phase COVID-19 designation. We have also modified other traditional Heritage Days activities to make them possible within Utah and Bear River Health Department guidelines.
enjoy a week long celebration!

NIBLEY CITY TO HOLD HERITAGE DAYS CELEBRATION
Nibley, Utah – In the midst of the ongoing pandemic, Nibley City has created a way to still hold its traditional Heritage Days summer celebration. This year’s Heritage Days Reinvented-20 will include events beginning on Saturday, June 13 and running through Wednesday, June 24, with some activities extended over the month.
“We feel that people need to connect and have fun now more than ever,” said Nibley City Manager David Zook.
“The mission of Nibley’s Recreation Department is to create a happy, healthy, connected community,” added Nibley Recreation Director Chad Wright. “All of our events have been designed with the health and wellness of our residents in mind and we hope they will have a great time as they celebrate and reconnect at a distance.”
Nibley has organized more than a dozen Heritage Days events for this summer’s celebration. Some of the events are similar to traditional events but others are new or reinvented versions of traditional events.
Returning events include a coloring contest, beard and mustache contest, chalk art, a disc golf tournament offered by Infinite Disc, a bike night out, and a reinvented (driveway) dance party with some help from Aggie Radio 92.3 FM. New events include a virtual talent show and a round-robin story activity, both offered by the Nibley Children’s Theatre, a trivia challenge, an at-home carnival and BBQ, and the HD-20 fitness challenge (in lieu of the usual fun run). Nibley resident Becky Yeager of the Cache Valley Wildlife Association is also offering a webinar with several experts that will include valuable information about Nibley’s Fireflies, Monarch Butterflies, and Bees. And Stokes Nature Center is partnering with Nibley City to lead firefly walks through Nibley’s new Firefly Nature Park.
There will be no mass-gathering events. Events will be at-home, distanced, online, drive-by, walk-by or bicycle events. Residents can participate in all events free of charge.
Nibley also has a surprise activity in store for residents, which will be unveiled on its Facebook page during Heritage Days, which is a new, one-of-a-kind activity that is sure to get some laughs.
Details about all events can be found at: www.nibleycity.com
