SLC Events - City Organized Events

Welcome to SLC Events, where we offer a wide variety of family-friendly, high-quality events that bring energy and atmosphere to our great city for those who live, work, and play here.  
Below you'll find a list of our FREE events, or in other words, the stuff put on by our teeny office.  ENJOY!

2018 EVENTS:

Saturday, May 5th in Downtown Salt Lake City

SLC Open Streets is back in downtown Salt Lake City! 

Imagine riding your bike down a wide city street under clear, blue skies. There are no cars in sight. You meander across lanes of traffic, surrounded by fellow bikers, skaters, and joggers. Food trucks and beer gardens line the streets. Echoes of laughter are carried by the warm breeze. Sound too good to be true? It isn’t!

On Saturday, May 5th, Salt Lake City is bringing back a favorite community event called Open Streets. From 10 AM to 4 PM a section of downtown will be closed to all non-essential vehicular traffic. This means that streets will be open for anything from walking to rollerblading. People are encouraged to bring family and friends for a day of movement and fun community activities including yoga classes, art exhibits, and live music.
