Saturday, September 11, 2021, marks the 20th anniversary of the worst-ever terrorist attack against the United States. It was the deadliest terrorist attack in human history, and the single deadliest incident for firefighters (343 killed) and law enforcement officers (72 killed) in the history of the United States.
Utah played a unique role in helping the United States regain its footing after the attacks on 9/11, through the success of the 2002 Winter Olympic Games hosted in Salt Lake City. This successful event sent a very strong message to the world that the United States will not cower from the world stage and cannot be knocked down.
The Major Brent Taylor Foundation, in collaboration with our local law enforcement, military, and fire communities, is proud to sponsor WEber Remembers: The 9/11 Project, to remember these events and to honor the lives lost and the sacrifices made in service to us all as a result of that day.
This free, immersive, interactive memorial museum experience will allow the public to see, hear and touch things that tell the story of September 11, 2001, and will run from September 9th through September 11th 2021 at the Weber County fairgrounds. The event will also include:
A Sunrise Flag Ceremony
A Firefighter Memorial Program
A Memorial Motorcycle Ride
1st Responders’ Touch a Truck
Weber County’s leaders, businesses, and residents will come together as a commUNITY in a joint effort to remember, share, give gratitude, and honor the sacrifices of September 11th, The Global War on Terror, and the unity made possible through our shared victories and common goals. As a commUNITY let's come together to remember and commit to making a difference!
