Parowan, Utah

The “Mother Town” of Southern Utah, this picture-perfect small town is home to unique shops and local businesses, historical wonders, and the gateway to places like Brian Head Resort, Panguitch Lake, and a National Scenic Byway.

Parowan By The Numbers

Small Town Charm

Exploring Parowan, you’ll observe that the residents hold tight to their pioneer roots of faith, family and love of country, and celebrate them whenever the occasion presents itself. Kids from elementary to high school age perform traditional pioneer dances at the town’s birthday celebration and Labor Day weekend, and the big city families come home for the annual Iron County Fair. With beautiful tree-lined streets, an old fashioned Main Street and a noticeable lack of traffic lights (no need), Parowan is a sweet slice of Americana.

Must See Places
