Urban Art Festival @ Downtown Alliance (SLC: July 20)

Urban Art Festival
Saturday July 20
11 AM - 8 PM
Having outgrown previous venues, The Gateway’s Rio Grande Street provides needed room for this ever-growing festival. Urban artists, three music and performance stages and a skate competition are just a few of the offerings that will delight and inspire Utahns who may have otherwise had little exposure to Utah's urban artistic culture.
New this year, the festival will offer a film festival and fashion show. More than 100 artist booths will fill the walkways of the Gateway.
