Fair to Remember: Be an animal or see an animal at the Utah State Fair, beginning today at the state fairgrounds. The next eleven days promise contests, cowboys, concerts and carnivals. Probably cotton candy, too. See here.
Dine-O-Round: Catch an apres-stroll bite at any of the local restaurants participating in Salt Lake’s Fall Dine O’Round, on now through September 27. You’ll get two-course lunches for $10, or three-course dinners for $15 or $30. Make your picks here.
Indian Summer: An eight-acre-big festival includes Indian entertainment and cuisine, plus art, photography and cultural exhibits when India Fest heats up at Spanish Fork’s Sri Sri Radha Khrishna Temple this Saturday. A big dose of culture never was so affordable. ($3 admission.) Details here.
Go Greek: The big fat Greek Festival starts today and continues through Sunday. Whipped up by Salt Lake’s Greek community, the Mediterranean spread includes souvlaki, dolmathes, spanakopita and other delicacies whose names we can’t pronounce but which we are happy to sample. There’s even a 10k run if you need to work it off. More info here.
