Here’s Derek Miller talking about business. Once again, Salt Lake City will host Open Streets to help support businesses, strengthen our economy, and welcome people to the heart of our community. Dee Brewer, Head of the Downtown Alliance, is here to tell us how you can get involved.
Open Streets is an invitation to enjoy 150 restaurants and bars and over 100 local and downtown retailers. The main street from 400 South to the South Temple will be closed to cars and open to pedestrians every Thursday, Friday and Saturday from noon to midnight, starting May 27.
Businesses will expand their sidewalk service areas for more outdoor dining and shopping, and a mix of musicians, street musicians and performers will bring a spirit of creativity and celebration to Main Street, Exchange Place. at City Creek.
The Open Streets opening weekend will be complemented by the Salt Lake City Arts Council’s Busker Fest, with 30 nightly performances on Main, Regent Street, Gallivan and Exchange Place.
As per CDC guidelines, masks are welcome but not required outdoors. However, some restaurants and stores require face coverings on their premises. So come downtown and join us every weekend night to celebrate Open Streets.
The Downtown Alliance strives to build a vibrant and diverse community, making Salt Lake the center of culture, commerce and entertainment. For more information visit centrevilleslc.org. I’m Derek Miller, from the Salt Lake City Chamber, and this is “Speaking on Business”.
