The First Presidency has announced dates for the open house, cultural celebration, and rededication of the Jordan River Utah Temple, which has undergone extensive renovations since February of 2016.

The Jordan River Utah Temple will be dedicated on Sunday, May 20, at 9:00 a.m., 12:00 noon, and 3:00 p.m. The public is invited to a free open house from Saturday, March 17, through Saturday, April 28, except for Sundays and March 31 (because of General Conference sessions).

Reservations will be available beginning Monday February 12, 2018, at 10:00 a.m. MST at templeopenhouse.lds.org.

The dedication will be broadcast to all stakes in the following temple districts: Jordan River Utah, Oquirrh Mountain Utah, and Draper Utah. The three-hour block of meetings will be cancelled for that Sunday for those congregations to enable members to participate and focus on this sacred event.

A cultural celebration featuring music and dance performances by local youth will be held on Saturday, May 19.

The temple was first announced on February 3, 1978, and dedicated November 16, 1981. The recent renovations include building reinforcements, mechanical and electrical upgrades, hard-ceiling installations, changing out escalators for stairs, and a baptistry remodel.
