Culture

Other annual festivities include a salmon supper, held every August, and the Onion Days festival, held every Labor Day weekend. The city also has band concerts in the Memorial Park, and has had such concerts since the early 1950s.

Payson is where most of the 1984 hit movie 'Footloose' was filmed, in settings such as Payson High School and "Sudsie"s', an old and local carwash. The town is also a film favorite for seminary videos filmed by the LDS Church. The popular Mormon film Baptists at our Barbecue was also shot on Payson's historic Main Street. Most recently, Payson was used to film most of the Disney Channel movie Hatching Pete.

Payson was originally named Peteetneet, after a Ute Indian chief who lived near Payson's current location. However, the pioneering residents decided to change the name to Payson, after James Pace, due to the fact that no one out side of Payson knew how to spell or say Peteetneet. A monument still stands to Chief Peteetneet at the Peteetneet Academy, originally the first school in Payson, but now a museum. Peteetneet Academy is a historical gem in the community and is know for its historical significance, beauty, and great sledding. Gordon Taylor has recently raised funds for the Peteetneet academy glass elevator construction was completed on it the summer of 2008. (www. Peteetneetacademy.org)

Payson is a very historical city that celebrates its heritage through monuments such as the historic main street, Peteetneet Academy, Historical Society that marks houses over a hundred years old, and with several museums.

It tells of a cat who leaves his woodpile home on his owner's farm for the urban life of Salt Lake City and then returns to Payson with his new and old friends.

The city has large numbers of persons with Scottish and Scots-Irish ancestry. However, the expansion of the Salt Lake metropolitan area into Payson has changed the city's ethnic and religious makeup with additions of Catholic, Mormon, Prestbyterian, Evangellist,and Wiccan. One of the largest and well-known Wiccan covens in Utah County can be found in Payson  Also the imprint of Scandinavian settlement is found in thousands of residents with Scandinavian (i.e. Danish and Swedish) surnames.
