Utah is known for its large population of Pacific Islanders, representing over a dozen Pacific Islander communities in our state alone. In 2012, Utah’s governor declared August “Utah Pacific Island Heritage Month.” Craft Lake City is excited to partner with Pasifika Enriching Arts of Utah (PEAU, a PIK2AR program) to feature food, performances and local artisans from these talented communities.
