New this year are Nepalese dances and food, as well as cultural displays from Uruguay, soul food and Turkish delights. Dozens of artists will demonstrate their crafts or sell items from a variety of booths, where newcomers include East Indian henna, Maori-inspired pottery, Shoshone bead work and Somali Bantu baskets, among others.
The three-day celebration of diversity runs through Sunday, at the Salt Lake City & County Building (450 S. 200 East), with plenty of food and beverages, games and activities, and musical events, as well as bocce ball courts, for the public to enjoy free of charge.
