The 2004 Salt Lake American Muslim Cultural Festival is scheduled to begin
at 11 a.m. on July 31 at the Gallivan Center, 239 S. Main St., Salt Lake City.
This year’s festival, to be inaugurated by Utah State Attorney General Mark
Shurtleff, celebrates the American ideals of diversity, inclusion, and
tolerance by presenting a diverse set of talented cultural performers and
vendors, says organizer Ghulam H. Hasnain. It is a free, fun, family
celebration with Islamic values in mind, with ‘halal’ food and an
alcohol-free environment where Muslims can meet each other and the
community at large.
