17.10.350: CULTURAL INSTITUTIONS AND FACILITIES:
Providing and fostering cultural institutions and activities which enhance the community's quality of life is recognized as an important objective of the Price community. Several programs have become a significant part of Price's cultural life and character, which include the efforts of the Price City culture connection, a community based organization to showcase the talents and culture available in Price and surrounding communities. The city also sponsors events such as the annual International Days, a festival which celebrates the culture, heritage, food, music and arts of the community.
A source of community pride can be found in the College of Eastern Utah Prehistoric Museum, located in the heart of the community, as well as the heart of dinosaur country. A unique and celebrated facility, the museum boasts a wide assortment of dinosaur fossils and ancient human artifacts.
Other civic and private organizations play important roles in the community culture as well. Fostering an environment where such organizations can develop and flourish is an ideal of the city which enjoys much support from the community.
