Sustain the Granary: Exploring the Salt Lake City Granary District

  • Granary District 700 S 400 W Salt Lake City, UT, 84101 United States (map)

Join the Young Architect’s Forum (YAF) to explore the Granary District. In the spirit of Jane Jacobs, participants will stroll through this dynamic urban village, stopping to tour local highlights and hear the stories of residents, designers and business owners.

The evening kicks off at 6:00pm at Artspace Commons (800 S @ 400 W), where there’ll be a display of architecture projects focused on the Granary District. From there, The Young Architects Forum, in collaboration with SLC Green Drinks, will be hosting a tour of the District (what folks in the know call a “Jane’s Walk”), featuring local businesses and highlighting what’s going right in the neighborhood.

At the heart of it all, is the block party — from 5–8pm — with street performers, food trucks, and live music.

Then, when the sun sets, join us at Frida Bistro — where Local DJs and photographers will showcase a performance peice featuring Granary District images accompanied by sound. And, of course, there’ll be Frida’s incomparable tapas, margaritas, and mexican lagers.
