SALT LAKE COUNTY ARTS & CULTURE VENUE RENTAL NOTICE
Salt Lake County Arts & Culture, in coordination with the Salt Lake County Health Department, is actively monitoring the progression of the COVID-19 pandemic. We are closely managing the COVID-19 community numbers; changes in those numbers and compliance in our facilities may impact our ability to continue to offer events in our venues. We are closely monitoring events that take place at our venues to confirm health guidelines are effective in ensuring the safety of attendees, performers, staff, and the general community. We are currently operating under orange-phase guidelines at all Arts & Culture venues (Abravanel Hall, Capitol Theatre, Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center, Eccles Theater, UMOCA) until further notice. We will implement yellow phase guidelines once we are certain we can do so safely. At this time, we will continue to confirm bookings for events that comply with Arts & Culture’s orange-phase event guidelines per our normal event management procedures. Orange phase event guidelines are subject to change, up to and including venue closure, at any time regardless of the booking status of the event. Events that do not comply with our guidelines in place at the time of the event may not be allowed to take place and may not be able to book events again until health & safety guidelines are lifted.
Salt Lake County Arts & Culture has four venues in the heart of Utah’s top arts and entertainment destination, downtown Salt Lake City, and in 2020 will be opening its fifth performing arts venue in Taylorsville Utah. In addition to the performance venues, the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art (UMOCA) is a staple in the downtown arts scene.

Virtual Events at Arts & Culture Venues
Venue closures over the last year have required arts organizations to reimagine how to present programs and many have moved their artistic experiences to a digital format. This is an effective way to stay connected with audiences and continue to perform.
As we move back to in-person performances, virtual programs remain a safe and creative way to present your work allowing you to stay engaged with patrons who do not immediately feel safe attending large events.
Virtual programs also allow you to complement your in-person performances by increasing audience size in limited capacity venues or to create additional seats for a type of “unlimited capacity”.
And you can reach new audiences who may have typically had barriers to attending in-person events or those who have grown accustomed to the comfort and convenience of virtual options.
Virtual Performance Rentals
To support online programming, Salt Lake County Arts & Culture now offers virtual performance rentals including:
- Specific rental rates at any of our theaters
- In-house streaming equipment packages
- Digital content ticketing services
- Marketing support
The streaming equipment can be used at any of our five venues: Abravanel Hall, Capitol Theatre, Eccles Theater, the Mid-Valley Performing Arts Center, and the Rose Wagner. With ten beautiful and classic stages available, we offer the perfect backdrop and technical support for any performance.
