Granary Row @ Granary Row
Oct 4 @ 6:00 pm – 11:00 pm
Granary Row @ Granary Row

Granary Row is a pop-up market and festival space. It’s a community space, as well as a breeding ground for local businesses.

Granary Row is the very sort of “big idea” that it hopes to foster — a bold urban venture aimed at inspiring and fostering the entrepreneurial ambitions of Salt Lake City’s creative class. At its core, it’s an experiment in ware-steading the Granary with microventures that will make the District their home — in turn sustaining the neighborhood as a place where makers live, work, and play!

Geothermal – The Hottest Alternative Energy @ Commander's House, Ft. Douglas.
Oct 9 all-day
Geothermal - The Hottest Alternative Energy @ Commander's House, Ft. Douglas.

Though a recent MIT study estimated that use of only 2% of the geothermal energy under US soil could supply all of the country’s energy needs for the next 2000 years, geothermal is the least known and least understood of alternative energy sources. Yet geothermal is clean, carbon-neutral or even carbon-negative, and provides power when the sun doesn’t shine or the wind isn’t blowing. Learn exactly what geothermal energy is, where it comes from, how it works, its advantages and disadvantages, and what the future might bring.
