Community Events

Throughout the year the Draper Community Foundation runs a variety of seasonally appropriate community events, including …

Annual Draper Easter Egg Hunt

Eggs to hunt, special guests including the Easter Bunny and lots of entertainment. Each year the Easter Egg Hunt gives us all a chance to come out of our winter hibernation to see friends, family and neighbors – and just to have a good time!

Summer Concert Series

Each Summer we hold a series of FREE concerts in Draper Historic Park. Sitting under a clear blue sky, listening to quality music, chatting with friends, family and neighbors. What a wonderful way to spend a lazy summer afternoon

Halloween Celebration

The Draper Community Foundation supports the efforts of the Sorensen Home and the Draper Library to offer a variety of events in celebration of Halloween.

Christmas in the Heart of Draper

This Christmas celebration includes the lighting of the official Draper City Christmas Tree and of course, a visit from old St. Nick. Our very own Miss Draper and the Mayor are on hand to light the official Christmas Tree. Held on the Monday following Thanksgiving, this is your opportunity to kick off the holiday season as a community before becoming consumed by shopping, office parties and family gatherings.

The Annual Draper Easter Egg Hunt and Christmas in the Heart of Draper are both managed by the Draper City Youth Council with support from and oversight by the Draper Community Foundation.
