The Living Traditions Festival will share the richness of our community’s cultural diversity through presentations of dance, music, craft, and culinary arts at innovative in-person and virtual events in 2021.

As part of the Living Traditions Festival, the Living Legacy video series will come alive in and around Salt Lake City on Friday nights in June as we incorporate showing these stories through video projections on designated downtown walls. From dusk to 10pm, people walking by can stop to learn about the diversity of community cultures that call Utah home and engage with the stories of our Living Legacy participants.

For over 30 years, this annual event has shared the richness of our cultural traditions in a festive, educational, and respectful manner. Local ethnic artists, craftspeople, dancers, musicians and chefs provide the framework for the Festival. They teach attendees about the traditions, techniques, styles, and materials used in the respective art forms, many of which are centuries old, that have been passed down generation to generation. Sharing cultural traditions within families and communities then sharing these traditions with the public is the essence of the Living Traditions Festival.

By preserving the cultural traditions of their community, Living Traditions artists make a great contribution to our sense of place and help demonstrate Salt Lake City as a diverse and vibrant place to live. With over 90 cultures represented, we hope that each festival attendee will gain pride and identity for the community as a whole. Admission is free for all event attendees, which brings together over 90 cultures that have made Salt Lake City their home.
