Shop at the Flea Market
The monthly Urban Flea Market is happening Sunday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., in The Gateway, near the Olympic Legacy Fountain (on the north end of the shopping center), at 18 N.

Free parking is available in The Gateway’s north garage.
‘Our Planet,’ live on stage
Here’s one way to celebrate Valentine’s Day: “Our Planet: Live in Concert,” with an orchestra onstage performing composer Steven Price’s score to projected footage from Netflix’s Emmy-winning 2019 nature documentary series — with pre-recorded narration from two legends: The series’ presenter, the broadcaster and biologist Sir David Attenborough, and actor and “Star Trek” star William Shatner. The concert happens Tuesday, 7:30 p.m., at the Eccles Theater, 131 S. Main, Salt Lake City. Tickets, from $30 to $65, are available at ArtTix.org. A portion of the proceeds will go to the World Wildlife Fund.
‘Bluey’ at the Eccles
If you wonder what the crowds and commotion are all about in downtown Salt Lake City next weekend, of course it’s the arrival of the stage show “Bluey’s Big Play” at the Eccles Theater, 131 S. Main in Salt Lake City, Friday through Sunday, Feb. 17-19. (Oh, yeah, there’s that NBA All-Star Game thing that weekend, too, I suppose.) Parents of young children know about Bluey and his family, the Heelers, from the BBC-produced TV series (airing on Disney Junior and streaming on Disney+). The stage show features puppets as the main characters, in a story by “Bluey” creator Joe Brumm and new music by the show’s composer, Joff Bush. The show runs Friday at 6 p.m., Saturday at 11 a.m., 2 and 5 p.m., and Sunday at 2 p.m. Tickets, ranging from $15 to $75, are available at ArtTix.org.
