Mona is a city in Juab County, Utah, United States. It is part of the ProvoOrem, Utah Metropolitan Statistical Area. The population was 850 at the 2000 census. At the time this was sufficient under Utah state law for Mona to become a city, which it did at the end of 2000.[3] Although current state law requires a minimum population of 1000 for cities,[4] Mona remains a city.

It is about halfway between Santaquin and Nephi, about 1.6 km (1 mi) west of Interstate 15.

The town was originally settled as Clover Creek in 1852, then renamed to Willow Creek, then Starr, before receiving its present name. Burl Ives was once jailed in Mona for singing "Foggy Foggy Dew", because it was considered bawdy by the authorities.

One of the unique things about Mona is a farm growing lavender. 120 acres (0.49 km2) of lavender are planted on the north side of town[5]. Mona also has an annual Lavender Festival.
