ZAP Kids Summer Passport Program

Salt Lake County Zoo, Arts & Parks (ZAP) invites you to EXPLORE YOUR WORLD this summer. Pick up a passport at your local Salt Lake County Library and visit five different destinations listed on the passport. Explorers who receive five stamps will be invited to an Out-of-This-World Celebration at Clark Planetarium.

The Utah Arts Festival Kids Art Yard is a featured destination on the passport. Present your passport at Kids Art Yard Headquarters Tent to get a stamp, and share photos of your journey by tagging #exploreZAP.

The Leo at the Festival

For the 2017 Utah Arts Festival, we're excited to partner with the Leonardo for a couple of exciting daily lounges where you can stop and rest with the kids during the day or relax with a glass of wine.

The Leonardo Family Lounge


Cool off from the summer heat and visit The Leonardo Family Lounge, new at this year’s Festival! You’ll discover hands-on activities for kids, ice-cold beverages and comfy seating for all on the main floor. Watch as your kids compete in a Lego challenge or chase bubbles around the museum while you kick back and relax with a glass of wine, a cold drink, or some delicious culinary delights.

Kids Activities in The Leonardo Family Lounge


Ignite your little one’s creativity at the Leonardo during the Utah Arts Festival with hands-on activities:

  • Learn how to make tasty homemade gummy bears using science
  • Drive super-cool sphero robots that can help you paint a true masterwork of art
  • Experience high-energy Lego challenges and win fantastic prizes!
  • Become a master chef when you create your own unique Mac and Cheese dish
  • Experiment with sprinkles and syrups to make an ice cream treat for the ages
  • Design a sugar cookie that is as fun to look at as it is to eat
  • Chase colorful bubbles great and small

The Leonardo Wine Lounge

7-11 PM

At night, The Leo Lounge transforms into a wine and food pairing science experiment like no other. With a chef and sommelier on hand, you will have the opportunity to pair different wines with unique foods and the only limit is your own creativity.

Festival patrons can access The Leonardo Family Lounge and The Leonardo Wine Lounge for a $5 add-on that can be purchased in advance online at or upon entrance to the Utah Arts Festival.
