Food truck Thursday

Korean cup bop That's all there is to say! If you haven't gone on Thursdays and tried the local food trucks you are missing a great treat!

Coming from France it is my first time in Utah, first time in Salt Lake City and what a delight it was to discover this outdoor concert and dance floor (that was recommended to me by locals). Great music, with 70's disco songs, jazz and rock songs as well as recent pop songs. Great artists, the singers had really nice... More

I used to work Downtown Salt Lake City and there was always something going on at the Gallivan Center! There have been food fairs, concerts, and ice skating in the winter. It is very pretty when flowers are in bloom and the architecture is neat. You can hop right of the TRAX train so you don't worry about parking if... More

We enjoyed listening to the music at Gavillan Utah Center at the special event called Salt Lake City Tastemasters event. The food was also good. There are various events held here. There is also nice sitting areas, plants, and walking areas. There is also a unique fountain area. In the winter there is an ice rink. Since we were staying... More

Headed downtown to look for lunch this Thursday and stiles across this little hidden gem. Tucked down the side streets on Thursdays they allow the food trucks to converge , giving foodies another treat to indulge themselves in. Looking forward to next Thursday !

I spent a fun, early afternoon trip to skate at the Valda E. Tarbet skating rink at the Gallivan Center. One of the attendants, Rebecca, was quite helpful in making sure that I had what I needed to make my skating experience as fun as possible. She told me when they needed to clean off the snow from the ice... More

Ice skating was a blast (even with all the younger kids goofing around). $8 for skating and skates rental. Lots of fun for a date night. Nice central location.

the summer concerts held here are nice, despite the smallish size of the plaza. The winter ice skating is a bit cheesy with all the couples dates, but everyone does have fun and it is a nice inexpensive date.

In the summer there are regular outdoor concerts held here, with some notable bands and artists displaying their talents. It is great to see so many people embrace the music and culture, it makes you feel like you are in a different city than Salt Lake more often than not In the winter, the ice skating is a great way...

I must admit that the last time I came downtown for New Years Eve it was more than a decade ago. My wife was expecting our first child and the cold night air was brisk and vibrant. That was then and now..... It was just as fun! We loved skating on the ice rink while musicians played in the frigid... More
