As a house of the Lord, this temple is entered by only the most devout Latter-day Saints after its dedication. Thus, they are eager to show the building to neighbors and friends during the open house.
At the conclusion of the open house, the Saratoga Springs Utah Temple will be dedicated in three sessions on Sunday, August 13, 2023, by President Henry B. Eyring of the First Presidency. The dedication will be broadcast to congregations throughout the area.
