Hiking, biking, and all the outdoors you can handle
It may be scary, but it's always a great break from the city to embrace the nearby nature. An early morning hike up City Creek Canyon or a bike ride along the Jordan River may just help you relax, reset, and enjoy the beauty of the city this summer. Keep an eye out for Unplug & Play events with Neumont's Resident Advisors to help you get to know SLC's outdoor scene. There's also a camping trip scheduled for July 30-31 at Crystal Hot Springs. Contact JP to reserve your seat.
Free or cheap film screenings
There's more than $5 Movie Nights in the summer. (Although don't forget to watch Valerian on Tuesday, July 25 with Neumont at the Gateway.) In addition to Neumont's own film festival on Friday, August 4 on campus, hot summer nights are rife with free or cheap movie showings across the city. Cities and libraries show movies outside all summer long. Neumont will be headed to a showing of Raiders of the Lost Ark at Library Square on Friday, August 18 at 8:30 p.m. The Tower Theater also has special screenings all summer long of cult classics like Ghost in the Shell, Clue, and The Big Lebowski. Tickets are $7 and screenings are every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday all summer long.
Baseball, roller derby, soccer, and a bunch of other sports probably
But we only pay a little bit of attention to those. However, Neumont will be headed down to the Star Wars-themed Salt Lake Bees game on Friday, July 21 at 6:30 p.m. You can also take in a roller derby match on Saturday, July 15. Seating is limited for both events, so contact JP to reserve your spot.
Farmers Markets, Food and Art Festivals
Pick a weekend and there's probably a festival in Downtown, Sugar House, or another area of the city. Some of the classic cultural celebrations include Greek Fest and Fiesta Italia. The Downtown Farmers Market on Saturdays at Pioneer Park is always crowded and a good time for finding local art, crafts, and foods. When it comes to the arts, there's the aforementioned Utah Arts Festival, Craft Lake City, and Urban Arts Fest. Some other stand out events include SLCVEGFEST and Crucialfest.
This is just a sampling of what's available for an exciting and adventurous summer. Check out Visit Salt Lake for more great events and activities.
