Farmers Market Kick-Off
Lots of us have been going to the Winter Market at the Rio Grande, but, hey, summer's finally coming! You can help celebrate 25 Years of the Downtown Farmers Market, which coincides with "Independents Week." The week recognizes the great Utah businesses that are the backbone of our cities and economy. The Farmers Market is a nexus for many of them, bringing a culinary, cultural and economic experience to Salt Lake City. Who doesn't like fresh produce in an environment filled with chemicals and frozen fare? Make it an evening at the Market Kick-off Party. Squatters Pub Brewery, 147 W. 300 South, 801-328-5055, Thursday, June 2, 5:30-8:30 p.m., $40 in advance/$50 day of event, SLCFarmersMarket.org

World Refugee Day
Even if you plan to vote for Donald Trump, you can still enjoy a fun day with friends and family—and refugees from around the world. It's an educational event for everyone—those who know, fear or welcome refugees to Utah. On tap are cultural entertainment, a global market, "Spice Kitchen Food Festival" and refugee youth volleyball and soccer championship games. And don't miss the 5K "Run for Refugees." World Refugee Day was established by the United Nations General Assembly on Dec. 4, 2000. Liberty Park, 600 E. 900 South, 801-618-5096, Saturday, June 4, 10 a.m.-4 p.m., free, Jobs.Utah.gov/Refugee

Aviation Festival
You can fly, or even find a job. What could be better if you're an aviation fan? The Skypark Aviation Festival and Expo features an FAA presentation among other forums. You'll hear about hiring from Skywest Airlines. For $25, you can take an airborne spin courtesy of Bountiful Flight, and, of course, there will be free giveaways, a concert, skydivers, a flyby and food trucks. Skypark Airport, 1887 South 1800 West, Woods Cross, 801-295-3877, Friday, June 3, 1-6 p.m.; Saturday, June 4, 9 a.m.-4 p.m.; waffle breakfast 8 a.m.; Lifeflight arriving at 10 a.m., free admission, SkyParkUtah.com
