While walking along Salt Lake’s Bonneville Shoreline trail overlooking our little urban gem nestled in the mountains, you will hear a strange noise this summer. Yup—the hills are alive with the sound of the Red Butte Garden Concert Series. In an incomparable setting, the Red Butte Concert Series is one of our summer must-do’s. Between top-name acts like Sheryl Crow, Death Cab For Cutie, The Gipsy Kings, and more, and the insanely beautiful backdrop of Salt Lake’s Wasatch Range, Red Butte’s Concert Series offers up aural pleasure with a heaping dose of nature. Add the fact that you can bring in your own cooler (yes, that means your favorite red, bubbly, or oat soda, and food) and this concert series is hard to beat.

Bring your picnic blanket or camp chairs, and settle in with an always animated crowd on the cool, green grass of Red Butte Garden.
