There’s no better expression of community life than through music and dance. Every culture in the world delivers some message through these forms; they’re an essential part of a community’s existence. To celebrate such creative expression, the second-annual Sandy Folk Festival welcomes various cultural communities to present performance art after many of last year’s attendees called Sandy Amphitheater and requested that the event return.

“We do this to showcase the diversity of cultures in the valley,” says marketing manager Steven Ireland. “We’re not just homogeneous, we have everyone. These [performance] groups are known for their cultural ties to the area.” Narodna (Russia and Poland, pictured), Folklorico Citlati (Mexico), Basque Trak, Kahealani (Hawaii) and the Salt Lake Men’s Choir share the bill for an hour and a half of free family entertainment. Imagine the Living Traditions Festival of two decades ago—fewer crowds and no spring rain.

Sandy Folk Festival @ Sandy Amphitheater, 1245 E. 9400 South, 801-568-2787, Sept. 1, 8 p.m., free. SandyArts.com
