The always enjoyable Living Traditions Festival returns this Friday for its 25th incarnation. This yearly event held on the Salt Lake City & County Building grounds starts on Friday May 21st at 5pm and runs through till Sunday May 23rd at 7.00pm. As ever, admission is completely free.
As well as the performing arts, the festival is a foodies delight too. This years ‘food market’ has 20 booths featuring cuisine from all over the world: Sudanese, Bosnian, Lebanese, Tibetan and Scottish to name just five. Be sure to bring down plenty of cold hard cash, as the vendors are generally cash only. In addition to the market the festival also features a range of cooking demonstrations too. Fingers crossed for some great weather, and hope to see you there!
Hi, I’m Stuart, nice to meet you! I’m the founder, writer and wrangler at Gastronomic SLC and The Utah Review; I’m also a former restaurant critic of more than five years, working for the Salt Lake Tribune. I’ve worked extensively with other local publications from Utah Stories through to Salt Lake Magazine and Visit Salt Lake.
I’m a multiple-award winning journalist and have covered the Utah dining scene for more than a decade. I’m largely fueled by Uinta Cutthroat, alliteration and the use of too many big words I don’t understand. I ate all the pies.
