LEARN MORE

SCHOOL DAY PROGRAM

The Living Traditions School Day Program takes place on Friday morning before the festival opens to the public, and provides the opportunity for local elementary students from several school districts to engage in authentic cultural traditions. Over 2,000 students attend and learn about the diversity, history, and heritage of Salt Lake’s ethnic communities through activities at the festival. Students have the opportunity to speak with artists, learn about their art form, and gain a greater understanding and respect for the cultures in our community.

If you are a teacher in Utah and are interested in having your class attend the School Day Program, please contact Kellie Call.

BOCCE BALL

This ancient game, whose modern adaptation most closely resembles bowling and is played around Europe and also on other continents with Italian immigrants, including Australia and North and South America, requires skill, strategy and just a little luck. Members of the Utah Bocce Association set up the courts at Living Traditions and provide instruction in the game throughout the festival.

KIDS AREA

Youth are invited to visit the Living Traditions Kids Area where they can make their own fun and colorful crafts. Local traditional artists share the story behind their craft and show youth how to create their own artwork to take home. Non-profit community partners will also have hands-on activities for kids.

CHILDREN MUST BE ACCOMPANIED BY AN ADULT AT ALL TIMES.
