Straddled between Utah and Juab counties is the agricultural and farming community of Santaquin.
During the last days of July and early August each year, the town of just under 14,000, spruces up for the Santaquin Orchard Days. This year that celebration has been diminished because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Santaquin’s Orchard Days started as Cherry Days several years ago, but cherries weren’t the only fruit harvested in the city. There were apricots, pears, peaches and apples, too. In 2010, according to city history, the name was changed to Orchard Days representing all of the fruit that is grown and marketed from the orchards of Santaquin.
