Rio Grande Downtown Farmers Market

Rio Grande Downtown Farmers Market was founded in 2013 in response to Salt Lake City's demand for fresh local goods all year round.
Hosted in the historic Rio Grande Depot, this market allows growers to extend the season, and features fresh vegetables from late season harvests and area greenhouses. Like the summer markets, it also offers the best of the region's grass-fed meats, dairy, honey, eggs, baked goods, and seasonal offerings for the holidays.

The Market will be held every Saturday through April 21st from 10am to 2pm


Regalia

The clock is ticking, the dancers are sweating, the choreographers are frantically creating and the audience is partying. It must be RDT's annual REGALIA, a fundraiser that asks the audience to award a commission. The performance culminates with a lively shindig and dancing on stage to big band music by the Joe Muscolino Band. Not to be missed!

Dar Williams

Touring musician, singer-songwriter Dar Williams has watched downtowns she visited morph from vacant to vibrant, over twenty years. The result is her new book, What I Learned In A Thousand Towns. Driven by the idea “when we help our towns find our souls, we find our own as well,” the book is “part how-to guide, part love song to our country and all its possibilities.” She’ll play songs from her prolific career, and open a dialogue about what “open mic nights, a good bookstore, and a local coffee shop” can add to the sweet song ofa town’s success.


Cake

Live at the Eccles presents, CAKE for One Night Only at the Eccles Theater in downtown Salt Lake City. ArtTix is the official source for tickets for Live at the Eccles events. As they approach their twentieth anniversary, CAKE’s adherence to their original guiding principles has only grown stronger. Formed during the nineties as a somewhat antagonistic answer to grunge, CAKE’s democratic processes, defiant self-reliance, and lucid yet ever-inventive music has made them a nation-state unto themselves, with no obvious peers, belonging to no school. In addition to writing, arranging, producing, and performing their own music, they have taught themselves to engineer their recording projects in their own solar-powered studio, which actually generates more power than is needed to run it, causing the building’s electrical meter to run in reverse. CAKE’s most recent album, Showroom of Compassion, debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart and was touted as “deadpan brilliance” by the New Yorker. The band is currently in the recording studio working on their ninth album due for release in 2017.

The Infamous Stringdusters

Unlike rock 'n' roll, bluegrass music's boundaries are often defined in very narrow terms and that has caused some bands to carefully consider their place within the genre. But, in order to survive, everything must evolve... even bluegrass. Enter the Infamous Stringdusters, the very model of a major modern bluegrass band.

Blitzen Trapper

We recently created a theater event that ran for a couple months in our hometown of Portland, OR called Wild and Reckless, half musical, half rock-opera dealing with heroin abuse, desperation, True Love and western power structures. Heady as shit, but in the end as it unfolded I realized it was really about music, that longing for escape, that pure juvenile psychedelia we possessed as kids laying in summer grass gazing up at the clouds in the sky seeing shapes in them, imbuing them with a reality that was not really there but that we saw it and named it. Stories upon stories.
