Mesoamerica
Family 1st Saturdays

Join us on the first Saturday of each month from 10am-2pm as we explore a new country and culture. Learn traditional dances, listen to music, eat authentic food, and make tons of fun hands-on arts and crafts projects! Programs are designed to be entertaining for the whole family. Arts and crafts activities are selected to engage kids from ages 3 to 12 and those who are young at heart. Best of all, our Family 1st Saturdays programs are FREE!

Family 1st Saturdays are made possible by grants from the Institute of Museum and Library Services and Utah Arts and Museums.
