On July 23, 2004 The Salt Lake Tribune reported, "The 2004 Salt Lake American Muslim Cultural Festival is scheduled to begin at 11 a.m. on July 31 at the Gallivan Center, 239 S. Main St., Salt Lake City. This year's festival, to be inaugurated by Utah State Attorney General Mark Shurtleff, celebrates the American ideals of diversity, inclusion, and tolerance by presenting a diverse set of talented cultural performers and vendors, says organizer Ghulam H. Hasnain. It is a free, fun, family celebration with Islamic values in mind, with 'halal' food and an alcohol-free environment where Muslims can meet each other and the community at large."
