What’s on in Salt Lake City?

Sundance Film Festival

The Sundance Film Festival is a major event that takes place in Salt Lake City’s neighbour, Park City. It’s the largest film festival in the United States and shows more than 115 films over 10 days. Independent filmmakers attend the festival to show their latest work in all different categories of film, including documentary, drama, short films, and children’s films. Attend several of the film screenings, then fill the rest of your time in Park City by enjoying its fantastic restaurant scene or heading to the legendary ski slopes. Attend the Sundance Film Festival by booking return flights to Salt Lake City in late January.

Sandy Hot Air Balloon Festival

Watch dozens of hot air balloons take to the skies over Salt Lake City at the Sandy Hot Air Balloon Festival. The annual event lasts two days in the Salt Lake City suburb of Sandy. Each day of the Hot Air Balloon Festival begins at sunrise when the first set of hot air balloons is launched. The festivities continue throughout the day with live music, food stalls, and activities for kids. Another wave of hot air balloons goes up at sunset when a golden glow over the Utah mountains serves as the perfect backdrop.
