Holiday Events at the Cultural Celebration Center

Below is a list of holiday programs that are offered free of charge at the Utah Cultural Celebration Center located at 1355 West 3100 South in West Valley City.  I especially am fond of the Trees of Diversity exhibit:

Nov 15: Trees of Diversity Exhibit

For nine years now the Utah Cultural Celebration Center has ended the year with a
magical, holiday tree exhibit that overflows from the art gallery and throughout the
entire facility. The
Trees of Diversity exhibit showcases not only decorated trees, but
also gingerbread houses, wreaths, nativities and “window shopping” style holiday
Bring the family on November 15 for the official opening reception and have photos
taken with Santa. Enjoy more than 25 trees decorated by different ethnic arts groups
from throughout the valley. Refreshments and music will also be provided.
