I guess September isn’t so bad after all. Mark your calendars for these upcoming food-centric events.

🎡 Utah State Fair

The Utah State Fair is Sept. 7-17 — time to eat all the glorious fried foods and take a spin on the carnival rides until you’re sick. There’s also an Elvis Presley tribute, rodeo, and butter cow.

🇬🇷 Greek Festival

The Salt Lake City Greek Festival is Sept. 8-10. Celebrate Greek culture through traditional dance and cuisine. The food lines can get long, so be sure to come early.

🍝 Festa Italiana

Festa Italiana takes place Sept. 16-17 at The Gateway. There will be over a dozen local Italian food vendors plus face painting and balloon art for kids. Enter the pasta or pizza-eating contest, if you dare.
