Dear Ogden City Residents,
Welcome to the new Ogden Connection magazine! This is a quarterly publication that is intended to provide an easy way for residents to stay informed with city updates. In these pages you’ll find seasonal calendars, public service announcements and information about upcoming events. Ogden Connection also includes community highlights and will showcase stories about the people, businesses and history that we all enjoy in our city. This publication will be sent to every mailbox in Ogden for free, including renters and business owners.

We enjoy an elevated quality of life here in Ogden, and we hope this magazine will serve as another resource to keep you informed and help you plug in to this culturally rich and diverse area. This year alone we experienced a remarkable 20% drop in part 1 crime while Lendingtree recognized Ogden as “One of the Best Places in America to Raise a Family with a Balanced Lifestyle.” Our various city employees and departments work hard to enhance that very quality of life, and they hope you’ll find information they share here both useful and insightful.
With the 61st year of Ogden’s Christmas Village and the annual Holiday Electric Light parade right on our doorstep, we hope you’ll mark your calendars and join us in the celebration. These holiday season events have been a free community staple since 1962. We are happy to give residents and visitors alike something beautiful to view as they make lasting memories with their families.
Our valued community partners have also added new traditions over the past few winter seasons. The Yeti Bash, Winter Market and many other events create opportunities for everyone to experience Ogden in their own individual ways, from the top of the slopes to the streets of downtown.
For those who might be looking for unique gifts or family experiences, don’t forget to support local when possible. Locally owned and operated restaurants and boutiques are the cultural heartbeat of Ogden’s nationally recognized downtown. The ads that help to make this publication possible may even help you discover a few local gems.
I can’t thank the people of Ogden enough for their support in this community throughout the year. As this magazine continues to publish, we hope to continue to bring you information and entertainment that is relevant, supportive and inspiring to the way Ogdenites work and play in this city every day.
Mayor Mike Caldwell
