Living Traditions Festival: Postponed to 2021

Over the last three months the Salt Lake City Arts Council has closely monitored the development of the coronavirus (COVID-19) and the tremendous social and economic impact it has had within our community. While we would love nothing more than to come together and celebrate in-person, we will instead continue virtual offerings, small socially distanced pop-ups that follow state guidelines for the “general public”, and look to support the community in innovative and necessary ways as we monitor public health guidelines.

“This has been a challenging year for everyone and we felt our large in-person events and festivals would not be able to responsibly maintain social distancing.” Felicia Baca, Executive Director of the Salt Lake City Arts Council said. “Our team has shifted their focus to supporting the community with safety and support in mind.”
