Celebrating a neighborhood

With street construction in the area, the 9th and 9th Street Festival is moving a few blocks west. The 30th annual festival will happen Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Liberty Park, Salt Lake City. (Enter either from 900 South or 1300 South, at the 600 East gates.) Vendors, food, live music, a bike rodeo for kids and a children’s art area (with face painting) are all planned. And it’s all free.

A Schuyler sister and more

You may know Renée Elise Goldsberry as the self-absorbed Winkie on Peacock’s “Girls5Eva,” or as rival lawyer Mallory Book on Marvel’s “She-Hulk: Attorney at Law,” or for her turn in the parody “Original Cast Recording: Co-Op” on IFC’s “Documentary Now” series. Oh, who are we kidding? Goldsberry will be indelibly known for the role of Angelica Schuyler in Lin-Manuel Miranda’s “Hamilton,” for which she won a Tony. Goldsberry is scheduled to perform Saturday at the Noorda Center concert hall at Utah Valley University, 800 W. University Parkway, Orem. The show starts at 7:30 p.m.; tickets are available at uvu.edu/thenoorda.
