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 PressBackers.com, 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

Thursday, June 25-Sunday, June 28



It’s time again for the annual celebration commemorating the establishment of West Valley City, and its ethnic diversity. This year’s attractions include carnival rides and games provided by Royal West, talent showcase competitions (amateurs ages 10 and older), a family 5K run, as well as a plethora of crafters, artisans and hobbyists. Dutch-oven cooking contests feature cuisine made from international recipes, and you can meander through booths offering multicultural entertainment.

Enjoy the procession of community members and cultural celebration with the Westfest Parade on Saturday, starting in the Shopko parking lot at 4800 West & 3500 South and ending just past Centennial Park. Best of all is the fireworks spectacular in 3-D on Saturday, with glasses available at the information booth or any one of the carnival-ticket booths. West Valley City welcomes everyone, so bring the family and friends, grab your lawn chairs, enjoy some fantastic food and delight in the festive entertainment.
