This is Derek Miller, Speaking on Business. Downtown Salt Lake City has a lot to offer this holiday season. The Gallivan Center is particularly festive this year, with the 2023 GLOW at Gallivan art experience now in full swing. Program Director of The Blocks Britney Helmers joins us with more.

Britney Helmers:

The Downtown Alliance and The Blocks Arts District are adding a layer of luminous magic to the Gallivan Plaza this year with the fourth and largest season of GLOW at Gallivan!

This season’s art experience is the most magical yet, with more than two dozen larger than life sculptures designed by interior collective celebrating Utah’s diverse natural, cultural and social landscapes. This family friendly attraction is open every evening and completely free! In the middle of this whimsical experience, Gallivan’s famous ice-skating rink is open until 10 pm every night, and skates can be rented for just 10 dollars.

The Gallivan Center isn’t the only place to celebrate the holidays downtown, either — pay a visit for Ballet West’s The Nutcracker, special performances at Temple Square and the Utah Symphony, and holiday concerts at the Eccles Theater. You will also find more than 170 bars and restaurants offering seasonal menu options and special holiday events.
