LIVING TRADITIONS FESTIVAL

The Living Traditions Festival is a FREE three-day multicultural festival celebrating the traditional music, dance, crafts and foods of Salt Lake City’s contemporary ethnic communities.

For over 30 years, this annual event has shared the richness of our cultural traditions in a festive, educational, and respectful manner. Local ethnic artists, craftspeople, dancers, musicians and chefs provide the framework for the Festival. They teach attendees about the traditions, techniques, styles, and materials used in the respective art forms, many of which are centuries old, that have been passed down generation to generation. Sharing cultural traditions within families and communities then sharing these traditions with the public is the essence of the Living Traditions Festival.

By preserving the cultural traditions of their community, Living Traditions artists make a great contribution to our sense of place and help demonstrate Salt Lake City as a diverse and vibrant place to live. With over 90 cultures represented, we hope that each festival attendee will gain pride and identity for the community as a whole. Admission is free for all event attendees, which brings together over 90 cultures that have made Salt Lake City their home.
