Salt Lake Unity Fest
The Salt Lake Unity Fest is a multi-day event that brings together the LGBTQ+ community, united, for sports and festivities. This annual festival will include sport competitions and fun nightly events that will showcase the festive urban amenities of Salt Lake.
“Sports Festivals are popping up all over the country and the LGBTQ community deserves to be introduced to an incredibly welcoming, inclusive, and urban city that can host a sports fest,” says Michelle McCardell, event organizer.
The Salt Lake Unity Fest will be held Dec. 12-15, 2019, at the Salt Palace Convention Center in Salt Lake City. Sporting competitions include volleyball, pickleball, basketball, dodgeball, swimming, bowling, futsal, roller derby and e-sports. Nightly events will include opening ceremonies, games, dancing, performances, and much more.
Until August 31, registration for the Salt Lake Unity Fest will be $100 per person. The fee includes registration in any of the nine sports, as well as admittance into the daily festival and nightly events.
