Hello Queer Foodies & Friends!

I hope you are all safe and well and taking care of yourselves during this unprecedented time.  For those who have not already heard through the Utah Pride Center’s communication channels, we are postponing The 2nd Annual Queer Food Festival which was originally scheduled for March 28th to a future date, TBD.

If you have already purchased tickets, they will be honored at the rescheduled event.  Rest assured that we will hold Queer Food Festival as soon as it is safe to do so, and your ticket purchase will be intact.  However, if any of you are suffering hardship right now and would like to request a refund, please email lizpitts@utahpridecenter.org with the name and email address under which you purchased tickets and I will process one for you.

In support of our restaurant friends, The Utah Pride Center has decided to donate any non-refunded ticket purchase proceeds from The 2nd Annual Queer Food Festival (to date) to the staff of Laziz Kitchen.  Moudi Sbeity & Derek Kitchen, Laziz proprietors, so generously brought this event to the Pride Center last year as a fundraiser and so, we feel honored and compelled to pay-it-forward through this small donation to their staff.

For those of you who are able, please support the small local businesses who have so generously supported The Utah Pride Center through Queer Food Festival this year and last.  You can purchase gift cards at many of these establishments online, via email, or over the phone.  You can also purchase beer, wine and spirits while practicing social distancing at state liquor stores and from some of the beverage producers directly.

And, as soon as we have a new date set, we’ll let you know.

Thank you all, be well & we will celebrate together soon!!
