Utah Arts Festival @ Library Square |  |  |

The Utah Arts Festival brings art to life at Library Square through awe-inspiring performances, artistic expression, and surprising discoveries at the state’s largest outdoor multi-disciplinary arts event June 21-24.

The Utah Arts Festival features 160+ visual artists and 100+ performing arts groups, drawing 80,000+ participants each June to celebrate artistic expression in the heart of Salt Lake City. The Festival includes seven performing venues of top world, national and local musicians and performers and program slates in literary arts, visual arts, kids activities, dance performances, musical commissions, street theater, art & technology, urban arts, film and culinary arts. During this four-day celebration of the arts, Festival patrons will discover the sky is not the limit—courtesy of BANDALOOP.

In its 42nd year, the Utah Arts Festival welcomes BANDALOOP, an internationally renowned dance company that awakens the human spirit and activates public spaces. In what they dub vertical dance, BANDALOOP seamlessly weaves dynamic physicality, intricate choreography, and the art of climbing—by utilizing the unique curving glass façade of the Downtown Library as their stage. BANDALOOP will perform each night during the 2018 Utah Arts Festival.

Volunteer Orientation: Bird Docent @ HawkWatch International

Volunteer Orientation: Bird Docent @ HawkWatch International |  |  |

Become a Bird Docent Volunteer and experience the wonder of raptors, first hand, while helping HWI expand its education mission!

Bird Docent volunteers assist in providing community outreach programs with HawkWatch International’s education birds. Volunteers are taught how to handle our non-releasable education birds, learn about birds of prey and our various programs, and then take the birds out to community programs to teach about raptor ecology and conservation. We do request a time commitment of volunteers and ask that they assist with some general bird care duties.

If you would like to become a Bird Docent volunteer for HawkWatch International, please attend this orientation where you will meet the birds and Nikki Wayment, HawkWatch International’s Education and Community Outreach Director.

6th Annual Day of the Dead @ Infinity Event Center
Oct 13 @ 6:00 pm – 10:00 pm
6th Annual Day of the Dead @ Infinity Event Center |  |  |

The Sharing Place’s Day of the Dead is not your average fundraising gala. Guests have the opportunity to get sugar skull face paint, visit psychic readers, honor a loved one at our memorial altar, and enjoy a delicious dinner from Red Iguana. This unique event is a celebration of life and remembrance as much as a fundraiser.

All funds from sponsorships, ticket sales, and activities will benefit grief groups at The Sharing Place and in the community. Last year, these groups helped over 500 children across the state of Utah process feelings surrounding the death of a family member through art, discussion, and play. Established in 1993, our program was one of the first of its kind in the US and has served thousands of children since.

Sponsorships begin at $500. Please contact dlankford@thesharingplace.com if your family or company is interested in sponsoring this event. Individual tickets will sell for $50.
