Artful eating: Foods to try at the Utah Arts Festival
The Utah Arts Festival menu is a mix of global flavors sprinkled with some American favorites.
There are spicy pork tacos, French crêpes, Greek gyros, Mediterranean kabobs, pizza and Asian rice bowls as well as Philly cheesesteak, ice cream, coffee drinks and spiced nuts.
And that’s just what’s available in the food court area along 200 East.
