To describe briefly:
1. Living Tradition Festival: The Salt Lake City Arts Council’s organizes Utah’s annual Living Traditions Festival, a celebration of authentic and traditional folk and ethnic arts. Living Traditions brings together people of all ages and backgrounds to honor cultural traditions and diversity within our beautiful city. Local ethnic artists—craftspeople, dancers, musicians, and chefs—provide the framework for the Living Traditions Festival.
For the last 18 years, our Tibetan youths perform the Tibetan Dance. Also, we have a Tibetan family who demonstrate Tibetan rug weaving.
2. Asian Festival: The Asian Festival brings together the entire Asian race and offers the platform to showcase our ethnic cultures in the state.
For the last 18 years, Utah Tibetan community has actively participated in the Asian Festival through Tibetan dance performance, exhibition booth and food booths.
