Our Story, Our Beginnings Our Story, Our Beginnings Redford with Hawk Our beginings...

Our beautiful beginnings as a catalog go back 30 years, but our story and heritage go back much further. We all have a personal story that is meaningful to each of us, yet unique. Sundance has a cherished story from its earlier beginnings. It is not one that is easily found or to be replicated, as it is authentic and deeply rooted in the American West here in Sundance, Utah. We are a real person, a real place. To understand our story and our heritage, it is important to go back to the very beginning.

In 1961, while driving from New York to Los Angeles, our founder—the acclaimed actor, director and environmentalist Robert Redford—passed through the beautiful Wasatch Mountains of Utah and fell in love with the area. He bought two acres of land, later purchasing 5,000 more acres to preserve the land. Drawn by its native beauty and natural liveliness, he named it Sundance and dedicated it to fostering creativity, independence and discovery in a place where art, commerce and nature could come together. Sundance Village was founded in 1969 and celebrates its 50th anniversary this year.
