On Saturday, October 28th, over 3500 people gathered at the Utah Cultural Celebration Center for our 14th annual Dia de los Muertos Celebration. The colorful and lively community festival shared the sacred Mexican holiday that celebrates the life of friends and family whom have passed and serves as a reminder that they have not been forgotten. With a mix of traditional and contemporary stylizations, our Dia de los Muertos welcomed families that observe the holiday in their own home, and also helped to educate and share this cultural event with the wider community.

In partnership with the World Golf Hall of Fame and Museum, the Utah Cultural Celebration Center is proud to present BOB HOPE: AN AMERICAN TREASURE.
The 2,200-square foot traveling exhibit tells the story of the Guinness World Records book “most honored” entertainer through a series of 15 themed exhibit display units that celebrate his comedic contributions, achievements in entertainment, relationships with a number of U.S. Presidents, and his other passion – golf. It traces his family’s arrival at Ellis Island, life as part of an immigrant family in Cleveland, his struggles to succeed in New York in entertainment, the success and family life he found in Holly wood, and how golf and his love for the military took him around the world.
