In the heart of downtown Salt Lake City is The John W. Gallivan Utah Center called "The Gallivan Center." It is an open space located at 239 South Main Street. It serves the residents of Salt Lake City and the surrounding areas with a variety of activities. It has an amphitheater, public plazas, a banquet and meeting center, a public ice rink, art installations, and nearby eating establishments.

It is a popular place for concerts, exhibits, workshops, debates, lectures, public gatherings of all types, festivals, and celebrations during holiday seasons.

The Gallivan Center is a pleasant location for free and low-cost entertainment with various performances where talented local people perform.

One of the events scheduled during the summer on Tuesday evenings at The Gallivan Center is the "Big Band Tuesday" event. Tuesday evenings at 7:00 PM a local band is featured. They have dance lessons which begin at 7 with a band concert to follow at 7:30. This is an opportunity to listen to big band music as well as to receive dance lessons from Ballroom Utah. The concerts and dance lessons are free, and the public is invited to attend.
