Lindquist Family Symphony Pops Concert and Fireworks

The Lindquist Family Symphony and Pops Concert has dazzled crowds and brought the community together since 1978. Held every summer at Weber State University, against the backdrop of the stunning Wasatch Mountains, this free community celebration has found a home in Ogden thanks to John A. and Telitha E. Lindquist.

Nearly 50 years later, John E. Lindquist, president of Lindquist Mortuaries and Cemeteries in Ogden, proudly continues the tradition. The event features an outdoor performance by the New American Philharmonic at the iconic Ada Lindquist Plaza at the heart of campus. The performance includes Tchaikovsky’s “1812 Overture” with a battery of 16 cannons provided by the Cannoneers of the Wasatch. Then, set to patriotic music, spectators enjoy one of the largest fireworks displays in Utah. Food trucks and other vendors are often on hand to serve attendees.

We hope you’ll join us — again or for the first time — for this spectacular tradition!
