Welcome to Cedar City, Utah
Cedar City, Utah is Iron County's largest city. Originally called Little Muddy, then Coal Creek,
it was later named to Cedar City by early settlers because of the abundance of cedar (juniper) trees in the area.
Home to the world-renowned Utah Shakespearean Festival, the Utah Summer Games and the American Folk Ballet,
Cedar City is truly a "Festival City." These events and dozens more like them throughout the year offer a
metropolitan lifestyle in this small town setting.
Cedar City is also just a short drive away from Cedar Breaks National Monument, Zion National Park, and Bryce Canyon
National Park. Combined with endless summer and winter outdoor activities, Cedar City truly is for everyone.
