The Carousel: an immersive theatre experience at Dreamscapes @ Dreamscapes |  |  |

Enter a world of dreams, woven by a tapestry of characters in THE CAROUSEL.

Utah Arts Alliance and Dreamscapes present an all-new immersive theatre experience, THE CAROUSEL, by SONDERimmersive beginning July 27th at Dreamscapes. Audience members move through the Dreamscapes exhibit guided by a performer, meeting 10 unique characters and their intersecting story lines. The intimate performance pairs three audience members with each performer for each pass through the exhibition. The circular nature of the show allows each audience member to experience two of the ten narratives each night.

SONDERimmersive – known for its unique blend of dance, theatre, audience experience, and unexpected environments– has created the ultimate immersive experience. The characters of THE CAROUSEL share their hopes, dreams, fears, and regrets with the audience through a series of vignettes that form a complex, 2-hour theatre performance.

Audience members enter THE CAROUSEL three at a time. Showtimes for THE CAROUSEL are every 5 minutes from 5:30-5:50 PM and 8:00-8:20 PM each Monday and Tuesday, beginning July 27, 2020. Audiences will be given face-shields for the show and performers will maintain 6-foot distance from the audience for COVID safety.

Craft Lake City is taking the virtual world by storm by pioneering a never-before-seen, innovative and interactive VIRTUAL 12th Annual Craft Lake City DIY Festival Presented By Harmons!

The DIY Festival is Utah’s largest three-day arts festival created by locals, for locals, celebrating all things local. More than 200 local artisans, STEM exhibitors, vintage vendors, food creators and performers participate in the DIY Festival, and from August 7-9, 2020 members of the public can support Utah-based creatives in a new and exciting way.

In the virtual environment, attendees will get to create their own avatar, shop handmade products with friends, and communicate directly with makers, crafters, artisans, and builders, all while having the same feeling of fun you would experience at a live, packed-festival event.

Similar to past DIY Festival VIP experiences, specialty food, drink recipes and CLC swag are all included in the package price. New to this year’s package is the exclusive access to digital content, directions to a private VIP virtual lounge and more!

Strut Your Mutt Salt Lake City @ Online event
Oct 24 all-day
Strut Your Mutt Salt Lake City @ Online event  |  |  |

As COVID -19 continues to bring uncertainty, Best Friends is taking every precaution to keep both people and pets healthy and safe. Because there’s no way to predict the full extent or impact of the virus’s spread, we’ve made the decision to cancel our live Strut Your Mutt event in Salt Lake City this year. But you can still step up to save lives from the comfort of your home. Strut Your Mutt Day is the virtual walk and fundraising event that since 2011 has been raising crucial funds to save the lives of dogs and cats in communities across the country.

When you register for Strut Your Mutt Day, you can virtually raise funds for Best Friends Animal Society or for the participating local network partner of your choice. It all culminates on Strut Your Mutt Day, October 24, when animal lovers across the country are encouraged to get outside and walk their dogs, stay in and snuggle their cats or donate to help pets in their communities.

Although we can’t be face-to-face, we’re going to have more fun that ever with a calendar chock-full of brand-new engaging events hosted virtually on social media. You’ll be able to join us for events like “pig yoga,” Advocacy Day, the Bow Wow Film Festival and much more. More announcements are on the way, so be sure to check the event calendar regularly throughout the season.

Though live events may not be happening, we can still make a huge difference for dogs and cats in shelters. Together, we can step up and Save Them All.
