Salt Lake Downtown


"Fun" is a personal term. For some, it means running up or riding down a mountain. For others, it's perusing a museum exhibit. And for others, it's live music and beer. Salt Lake's event calendar is bursting at the seams with fun stuff for every inclination, every day and night of the week.

Find out what's going on in Salt Lake before, during, and after your convention. You can browse events by category, location, date, or keyword.
