Clean Air Solutions Festival at The Gateway (The Gateway)

Utah’s Seventh Annual Clean Air Solutions Fair will be held at The Gateway from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, March 7, 2020 at 12 South 400 West.  It’s a day to discover skills and habits for cleaner air. The event is free and open to the public.

Attendees will meet educators, activists, scientists and crafters with useful and interesting ideas and information. This year’s exhibitors include solar companies, e-bike retailers, recycling organizations, air filter masks, home improvement specialists, gardeners, healthcare practitioners and more. Exhibitors will offer interactive activities. Learn how to find the smog rating on your vehicle; why and how to report a “smoking” car (and receive repair assistance); bone up on the latest air-related legislation; and have a cup of lung-soothing tea.

Additional attractions include:

 *   Plastics-free activities at the KidZone, this year run by WonderBloom Preschool.
 *   Skill Sharing: Learn how to insulate your hot water pipes, caulk to reduce heat loss, darn a sock, repair clothes, culture vegetables, sharpen tools, make beeswax candles and more.
*     A UTA travel trainer who will help you download the right app for you, show you how to use it, and help you plan your daily route using bus, TRAX and train.

 *   Discussions and workshops: Become a citizen lobbyist for clean air, practice breathing exercises for lung health, visit the Conversation Corner.
 *   A sound bath experience offered by Chad Davis, with singing bowls, gongs and more.

The Fair location is just south of Union Station off 400 West at the top of the Olympic Legacy Plaza stairs. It’s easy to get to The Gateway on public transit. There are two TRAX stations: “Arena” by Vivint Smart Home Arena and “Planetarium” on 100 South and 400 West. The Salt Lake Bicycle Collective will provide valet service for those arriving by bike.

“It’s fun to host the Clean Air Festival for the second year here at The Gateway. We’ve consciously made choices with our renovation to create a space that’s pedestrian-friendly and close to public transit. We hope to champion initiatives that are sustainable and celebrate events that educate and share ways to better improve our community, like the Clean Air Fair does.”
