The First Presidency has announced the dates of the Cedar City Utah Temple open house, cultural celebration, and dedication.

The free public open house begins Friday, October 27, and continues through Saturday, November 18, 2017, except for Sundays. A few weeks before the open house, the public can reserve tickets at templeopenhouse.lds.org.

A cultural celebration featuring music and dance performances by local LDS youth will be Saturday, December 9.

The temple will be dedicated on Sunday, December 10, in three sessions at 9:00 a.m., noon, and 3:00 p.m. The dedication will be broadcast to Church units in the Cedar City Utah Temple district. The three-hour block of meetings will be cancelled for that Sunday.

President Thomas S. Monson announced construction of the temple at the Church’s April 2013 general conference. Ground was broken for the temple August 8, 2015, at 300 South Cove Drive in Cedar City.

This will be the Church’s 17th temple in Utah. It will serve members in southern Utah and eastern Nevada. More than 2 million Latter-day Saints live in the state.
