Living Traditions Returns this Weekend

Have you ever wanted to travel around the world?

The Living Traditions Festival returns to Library Square this weekend to celebrate the vibrant and diverse culture we embrace right here in Salt Lake City!

The festival features local folk and ethnic arts. With three stages of entertainment, from Scandinavian dancing to Native American traditional music, prepare to be dazzled from the moment you enter. There will also be food tents with a wide spectrum of delicious delights, and tents filled with trinkets and goodies that you just won’t resist.

This year there are two featured artists. Red Baraat will be playing on the North Stage at 8:30 p.m. on Friday (May 16) and Quetzal will also be performing on the North Stage at 5:30 p.m. on Sunday (May 18).

The SLCgreen crew recommends taking alternative transportation to the festival. Library Square can be accessed by TRAX from either the Library Station (Red Line) or Courthouse (Blue and Green Line) Station. The Salt Lake City Bicycle Collective is offering a complimentary bike valet service at the northeast entrance of the festival grounds. And if you must drive, carpool with some friends so you can all enjoy the festivities!

Full schedule:

Friday, May 16: 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Saturday, May 17: Noon to 10 p.m.
Sunday, May 18: Noon to 7 p.m.

More details are available on the Living Traditions Festival website.
