Utah Job Growth in the Creative Industry

The Utah creative industry grew 11% in 2018, putting Utah in 3rd place for the fastest growth rate in the country. This statistic is incredible! Not only is Utah the 3rd fastest growing state for arts and culture, it also ranks first in live arts participation per capita. These numbers can all be attributed to the healthy, vibrant and diverse cultural scene Utah has cultivated. The Utah Cultural Alliance collected data and found that Utah’s cultural sector employs a little under 112 thousand Utans a year, while also generating $4 billion in earnings.

One tradition that is undeniably a truly “western” experience is a cattle drive, a unique part of our heritage and history in Utah. Summit County is lucky to be the home of traditional cattle drives for working ranches. I had the chance to join the Leavitt family for their annual cattle drive, and it was an adventure not to be forgotten!
