Westside Festival

Restore North Temple & River District Chamber present the 2018 Westside Festival!

In 2018 we look forward to bringing you even more artists, performers, musicians, and food vendors from the west side and across SLC.

We have opened the applications for food vendors, artists, performers, musicians, and community booths. Volunteers are also needed! This year’s festival will be larger than our inaugural event in 2017, and we will need a large volunteer group. We are looking for at least 20 to 30 volunteers to cover various shifts and responsibilities.
