Free (or Cheap) Events in Salt Lake

What’s the deal in Salt Lake? Actually, deals are everywhere, with free events taking place throughout Utah. Among the many venues that host free events are The Gallivan Center, Pioneer Park, and Temple Square. Or feel the “freedom” at The Gateway and City Creek Center, two local malls also known for providing free, fun events.

Liberty Park is popular for hosting food truck rallies, car shows, drum circles, LARPers and more. The Cathedral of the Madeleine and other local religious organizations frequently host free performances in addition to offering lush grounds that can be “freely” explored. And Gallery Stroll is a free monthly event where local galleries and museums open their doors to the public for free art, music and fashion shows.

Local libraries (both city and county) offer a plethora of free activities for kids of all ages. Movies in the park in the summer become free film screenings in the winter. No matter the time of year, you can see and do a lot – for very little in Salt Lake. Here are a few of our favorite free events throughout the year.
