The Salt Lake City Arts Council presents the Living Traditions Festival, a celebration of authentic and traditional folk and ethnic arts. Living Traditions brings people together to honor the diversity and cultural traditions of our community. Local ethnic artists – craftspeople, dancers, musicians, and chefs – provide the framework for the festival. They teach us about techniques, styles, tools, and materials used in their respective art forms, many of which are centuries old.
This year marks the 30th anniversary of the festival! We invite you to enjoy the sights, sounds, and flavors of this community favorite event. We hope you experience – in a spirit of mutual respect and understanding – the rich and diverse cultures that contribute to the cultural depth and breadth of Salt Lake City.
