Dear Festival Supporters with Discriminating Taste -

Thanks (hopefully once again) for supporting this years SLAM Festival.  We have thrived primarily because of your loyal support.  On August, 28, 2005, we look forward to introducing you to an exciting array of artists and speakers.

As we complete our 3rd year, this message marks a landmark for our growing Festival.  During the past years, our mission was to bring only the best of the best in cultural expression.  As always, the Festival is Free to the public with performances from a number of accomplished artists from our community.

The wonderful SLAM Festival preserved here in Salt Lake City is an event that has been sorely needed in the global landscape of distrust among human beings.  Folks (hopefully like you), who have become regulars at the event, and those of you who plan on attending this years Festival will help develop a continuing tradition to promote diversity.  Your support helps fuel our environment where the pursuit of pure and honest interaction among people of all ethnic and racial backgrounds are deeply valued and recognized.

If you have been to our previous Festivals, and would like to invite others out to the event, you already know that we believe WORD OF MOUTH is the most powerful form of marketing.  Accordingly, if you like what you see on our pictures from 2003 and 2004.  PLEASE DON'T MISS SLAM FESTIVAL 2005!

Thanks again !!!!!!  Please help spread the word !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sincerely,

Your friends

SLAM Festival Family

 

The festival celebrates the American ideals of diversity, inclusion, and tolerance by presenting the most diverse set of talented high class cultural performers and vendors. The festival is first and foremost a free fun family low cost celebration with Islamic values in mind such as availability of ‘halal’ food and an alcohol free environment where Muslims can meet each other and the community at large.
