Washington Square Park (450 South 200 East, Salt Lake City)
Wave goodbye to winter and celebrate the launch of Salt Lake’s outdoor event season with three days of food, music, dance, and crafts honoring the diversity and cultural traditions of our community. Local ethnic craftspeople, dancers, and musicians will share their insights on techniques, styles, tools, and materials used in their respective art forms, many of which are centuries old.
This year’s featured musical headliners include The Relatives (psychedelic gospel), Maura O’Connell (Irish /American folk), De Temps Antan (Quebec folk), and Mariachi Divas (multi-cultural, all-female ensemble).
The Food Market offers an array of delicious traditionally prepared foods by twenty-one local vendors.
Admission is free and festival hours are: Friday, May 17, 5 to 10 p.m.; Saturday, May 18, noon to 10 p.m.; and Sunday, May 19, noon to 7 p.m.
