The Utah Cultural Celebration Center is dedicated to enriching and strengthening communities by promoting the expression of the arts, education, opportunities for economic development and the celebration of human diversity.

The center is committed to:

  • The preservation and perpetuation of cultural traditions
  • Creating a setting for cultural exchange and experience
  • Promoting the visual and performing arts as well as the humanities
  • Encouraging education through creative thinking and experiential learning
  • Enhancing opportunities for economic development
  • Providing a social infrastructure for networking within the community
  • Establishing a ‘home’ for diverse artistic achievement.

The Center is designed to strengthen a sense of unity among the people of the Wasatch Front by highlighting cultural wealth and creativity and offering a forum to celebrate our residents’ talents in music, dance, performance and visual arts. We work to provide a place where family and friends can come together, and where cultural arts are nurtured, promoted, and celebrated.

Trees of Diversity

Utah Cultural Tree Exhibit

For close to twenty years the Utah Cultural Celebration Center has featured a holiday tree exhibit that overflows from the Celebration Gallery, and throughout the entire facility. Each year the number of groups involved, including arts, cultural, non-profit and commercial, has grown and grown. The purpose of this exhibit is to bring the community together in the celebration of various holiday traditions not only from different countries but from different religious backgrounds and various family or community traditions. The tree is used as a sign of friendship and is used to display the art and artifacts representing the richness of our community traditions.

This year the Trees of Diversity exhibition will have over 25 trees and holiday scenes created by various community and ethnic groups. Included are Amish, Honduran, American Indian, Chilean, Peruvian and other South American countries, Mexico, Japan, Canada, Africa, Hawaii, Scotland and others. The Cultural Center will also be displaying artifacts and other historical items from around the world, along with art pieces, nativities, nutcrackers, gingerbread houses, special holiday “store window” scenes, sculptures and wreaths. Two special displays will highlight holiday traditions in both the Jewish and Muslim communities, and the 100+ Dolls from Around the World collection will once again be on display.
