Festival + Food = Perfect Weekend

Two of my favorite things are festivals and trying different cuisines. A festival with a focus on international food? Be still my beating heart! If you’re in Salt Lake and looking for something to do this weekend, might I suggest this event?

The festival celebrates the “traditional cultures of the many groups, native and immigrant, that make Salt Lake their home, so the whole community can enjoy a diversity of authentic foods, music, dance and crafts.”

Looking over the list of food booths made my mouth start watering. There’s going to be so many types of delicious food: Tibetan, Sudanese, Lebanese, Soul food, Thai, Hawaiian, Vietnamese, Indian, etc… I can almost taste the momos already! And besides the food booths, there are also cooking demonstrations.

The festival runs this Friday (5:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m), Saturday (noon to 10:00 p.m.), and Sunday (noon to 7:00 p.m.). More info can be found here.

  1. momos… droooool. We have something called “International Festival” here – I took LN last year and it was fun, lots of dances and activities… but the food variety was limited. 🙁

    Totally random but near my high school in India, there was a Tibetan refugee neighborhood called “Happy Valley” and OMG the food you could get there was… simply heavely.

  2. Mama Nabi, I’ve never been to the festival before, but looking over the website has given me high hopes. If I actually snag a momo I’ll think of you!
