Over 30 FREE musical acts will be sharing the HEALING POWER OF MUSIC with the greater Salt Lake community, bringing their talents to the streets bordering the newly developed Imperial Park, playing from neighborhood porches and yards.

Throughout the rest of the year, these performers donate their time and talent to HEART AND SOUL, a local nonprofit organization that brings such performances to hospitals, nursing homes, prisons, and other audiences who can’t come out for the Music Stroll. Last year, Heart and Soul provided nearly 900 shows from over 300 artists along the Wasatch Front.

Bring your friends and family to enjoy a Saturday afternoon strolling from house to house, yard to yard, band to band, through the tree-lined streets of this Sugar House neighborhood. Savor the music and hear the love. You can also savor the flavors from several local food trucks at the Stroll.
