USED BOOK SALE
Yes, some people still read real books. So, this is your day, book lovers. That funky little used bookstore on 11th East is holding its sixth annual parking lot sale. Wander into the bookstore among stacks and stacks of pre-loved paperbacks, their wear showing what good reads they are. You'll find prices so low you won't be able to walk away with just one. Central Book Exchange, 2017 S. 1100 East, 801-485-3913, Friday, Aug. 5, noon-8 p.m., free, Central-BookExchange.com

AFRICAN FESTIVAL
African culture is rich and musical—and you can participate this weekend at the inaugural African Festival. Learn how to play African drums. Enjoy authentic African food from various part of the continent, crafts, fashion, dancing, talents, poetry, an African Zumba class and lots more. There's even a playhouse and balloon art for the kids. The festival is designed to share and showcase African tradition, culture, heritage and customs, and also serves as a vehicle to promote Utah businesses in general, and African small businesses in particular. South Towne Expo, 9575 S. State, Sandy, 808-237-0543, Saturday, Aug. 6, 10 a.m.-7 p.m., Facebook.com/UtahAfricanFestival/?fref=ts

KIDS DANCE CLASSES
We know your kids are perfect, but wouldn't you like to see them learn enduring skills such as rhythm and coordination? Better yet, they'll gain confidence that contributes to their future success in life. That's what DF Dance Studio promises as they open 14 new dance classes for youth ages 4-18. Come to one of the free parties every Wednesday through mid-August, meet-and-greets with the program director and fun classes. The Glow in the Dark Dance Party is one of the best black-light parties around. White and bright-colored clothing is recommended, and kids can take dance classes in styles such as ballroom, ballet, tap, jazz, salsa, hip-hop and break dancing. DF Dance Studio, 2978 S. State, 801-466-0490, Wednesday, Aug. 10, 11 a.m.-noon, free, DFDancestudio.com

COOKBOOK EXCHANGE & POTLUCK
Bring a dish and your gently used cookbooks to swap. You know SFU cookbook exchange & potluck is sponsored by Slow Food Utah, gently nudging you away from fast food and the fast life. Any extra cookbooks will be donated to the Salt Lake Public Library to support the Friends of the Library Annual Used Book Sale. Liberty Heights Fresh, 1290 S. 1100 East, Tuesday, Aug. 16, 7 p.m., free, SlowFoodUtah.org
