Come and check out the wide variety of craft, service, and retail vendors at the Steel Days Food and Vendor Expo at Art Dye Park (1000 N. 550 E.). The Expo runs from 4:00 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. on Friday, July 10 and from 1:00 to 10:30 on Saturday, July 11. Because most of the events where these vendors sell their merchandise have been cancelled this year, many of them have experienced significant decreases in revenue. We encourage you to support these local businesses.

There will also be several food trucks and food vendors offering all types of delicious food and drinks. Some of the types of food available for purchase are American, Asian, desserts and sweet treats, Hawaiian/Polynesian, Italian, shaved ice, snacks, and South American/Mexican. To quench your thirst during the hot, July afternoon there will also be several specialty drink vendors selling ice-cold soda and lemonade. A large dining tent will be set up with tables and chairs for covered eating and for those looking for relief from the sun.

The Steel Days Neighborhood Parade will be on Saturday, July 11 at 9:00 a.m and will be a 22 mile route through American Fork. This year, because of the construction on Main Street and the need to provide more space for people to social distance while viewing the parade, we are changing the route. The parade will be coming to the people! It will start at American Fork Junior High, go throughout the neighborhoods in the city, and then end at Rotary Park. Please see the map for route details.

It is our goal to make the parade as entertaining and enjoyable as possible. In order to do so, we need to make safety our highest priority. Please stay out of the road and avoid congregating in groups.

?As the parade concludes, please help us take pride in our community and keep it clean by collecting any trash that is around you or that you see and depositing it into trash receptacles. Please remember that Steel Days and the Grand Parade are meant to bring the community together to celebrate our great city. Let’s have fun and be respectful to everyone around us, including spectators, parade entries, and volunteers.​
