"I LOVE IT.
IT IS WILD WITH ADVENTURE."
Helper, Utah, named for the "helper" steam engines used to assist trains traveling the steep grades through Price Canyon, has been called the "Hub of Carbon County." Known for its rich history, rugged scenery, and population diversity, Helper is now becoming a tourism hub due to its large artist population and beautifully restored downtown areas.
Located only 116 miles southeast of the Salt Lake City International Airport and 122 miles north of Moab, Utah, Helper is a unique destination. Those who visit Helper will find a vibrant art scene and frequent community events, including First Fridays, gallery strolls, live music, the Helper Arts, Music, and Film Festival, and the Christmas Town Light Parade. With a myriad of activities to choose from and small businesses for great local shopping, Helper truly has something for everyone.
