LDS Church General Conference

Downtown Salt Lake City will be busy this weekend, as Mormons from around the world gather for the 176th annual general conference of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, to be held April 1-2.

The public is invited to participate. Meetings will begin at 10 am and 2 pm both days, in the Church’s Conference Center, across the street to the north of Temple Square. The Conference Center usually fills to capacity and so seats may not be available. The proceedings are broadcast over loudspeakers at Temple Square and many people enjoy browsing around the gardens there while listening.

Most sessions are streamed live, in many languages, on the Church website.

The Mormon Tabernacle Choir will perform and Church general authorities will speak.

Downtown park lots may be filled to capacity both days. TRAX light rail service will be expanded to accommodate people traveling downtown. Bus service is also available to help people get around. More information.

Many downtown hotels will be full.

The Mormon Temple Square complex is actually Utah’s biggest tourist attraction. It features exhibits and presentations to help people learn about the Church, and about the pioneer heritage in this area.
