We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you. DONATE

Meet The Candidates

Real Women Run, Million Mask March and more.



Meet The Candidates
This is not your mother's Meet the Candidates event. The Sierra Club's political action team wants you to meet their slate of candidates for this year's election—coming up fast! In fact, ballots must be mailed by Nov. 6. The event features city council and mayoral candidates from throughout the valley—Alta, Salt Lake City, Cottonwood, Midvale and South Salt Lake. You must be 21 to participate as it takes place at Beer Bar. If you're an environmentalist—or not—you'll want to talk to these hopefuls before you mark your ballots. Beer Bar, 161 E. 200 South, 801-656-7268, Saturday, Nov. 4, 3-6 p.m., RSVP,

Real Women Run
Half the population really needs to step up their game. Only 21 of the 104 members of the Utah Legislature are women—so guess who's making your laws? To mitigate that, Logan's first Real Women Run training event is open to candidates, campaign managers and community members. Keynote speaker is former state Rep. Ronda Rudd Menlove. You'll learn about campaign fundamentals, digital media and money in politics.

Utah joins the annual worldwide protest associated with the hacktivist group Anonymous and coincides with Guy Fawkes Day. You know: "Remember, remember/ The fifth of November/ The Gunpowder treason, and plot/ I know of no reason/ Why the Gunpowder treason/ Should ever be forgot!" After the march, people will gather in front of the Wallace F. Bennett Federal Building for Remember the Fifth rally where speakers will expound on "everything from local government/institutional corruption to daily actions we can take to end elitism!" Utah State Capitol, 350 S. State, Sunday, Nov. 5, noon, free,; Federal Building, 25 E. 100 South, 5-7:30 p.m., free,
