RED BUTTE GARDEN 2017 OUTDOOR CONCERT SERIES

www.redbuttegarden.org/concerts

Concert series tickets went on sale April 24 are still available for 19-20 of

From its beginning in the 1980’s as a series of five or six “alfresco summer concerts” in

the Garden on Sunday evenings, to the current 3,000-capacity Red Butte Garden

Amphitheatre with top-name acts and a schedule chock-full of consistently sold-out

shows, the Garden is the place to experience some of the best summer concerts in Utah.

You get it all—panoramic alpine-glow views of the Wasatch Front and the Salt Lake

Valley sunset, a botanical garden, your blanket and picnic spread out on the

Amphitheatre lawn in the foothills, and then, of course, there are the amazing artists on

stage.
