In order to address concerns about access to and protection of property, the Draper City Council has approved the following regulations related to parade routes and parade staging areas:
- Reserving a spot along the parade route on public property is not allowed any earlier than 6:00 PM three days prior to the parade, which in the case of Draper Days would be the Wednesday prior to the parade on Saturday. (Reserving a spot on private property without a property owner’s permission is never permissible)
- Obstruction of public sidewalks, paved streets, or private drives is prohibited. Any position that is deemed unsafe or would cause damage to public or private property is also prohibited.
- Vehicle or trailer parking is allowed along the parade route after 8 AM the day before the parade. All existing city parking regulations remain in effect outside of that window of time. Only motor vehicles that are parade entries are allowed in areas designated for parade staging.
- The City is authorized to give permission to the event permit holder to reserve areas for observation of the parade or to erect and control seating on public property.

We ask for cooperation with these regulations to help provide a safe and enjoyable environment. Also, on the day of the parade, please be watchful of parade traffic and prevent children from running into the street during the parade.
The Draper Days parade is scheduled to be held on Saturday, July 16, 2022 at 9 AM. A map of the Draper Days parade route is available here.
