It’s sometimes hard to appreciate the multi-grain diversity that keeps Utah from being a white-bread state, which is why you won’t want to miss Utah’s World Refugee Day celebrations. Later, check out an art auction and garden party to help support Alta View Hospital’s Women’s Center. Finally, learn how to make the sun work for you with a workshop on developing solar-thermal heating for your home.

World Refugee Day
June 17-June 19

Catch the finale to this celebration of Utah’s 30,000 refugees with a documentary film and a weekend fair. On June 17, watch a free film about the Congolese Restoration and listen to (or join in on) a post-film discussion. On Saturday, join a day-long festival with cultural performances and activities like the refugee soccer tournament or the Run for Awareness 3K to benefit women in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
Salt Lake City Main Library, 210 E. 400 South, film screening of Congolese Restoration, June 17, 7 p.m.; Granite High School Campus, 3305 S. 500 East, June 19, 12-8 p.m., World Refugee Celebration Day. For more information, contact Emily Smoot, 801-297-1299, esmoot@ccsutah.org
