Trent and Allie Stage

Meet YouTubers and DIY Adventurers Trent & Allie—From Camper Renovation to Home Design, They Take Ordinary to EXTRAordinary 


Trent & Allie are a couple of DIY adventurers who have traveled the world in their camper van for three years, driving all the way from Canada, through Central America, to the southernmost tip of South America, before deciding to turn a plot of land in the mountains of Utah into their home base. Their challenge is to live every day to the fullest and encourage others to do the same, even in the midst of blizzards, plumbing disasters, and crane malfunctions. It’s been a whirlwind building a home at an elevation of 8,000 ft. and they are excited to share their renovation and home-building adventures. Come see Trent and Allie in person on the Design Stage Friday at 5:00pm and Saturday at 11:00 and 5:00pm

You can also catch them every Monday and Friday at 7 a.m. on YouTube.


Santo Taco Kitchen Stage

Claudia and Alfonso | Santo Taco

We got our start in the U.S.A. when we first moved to the Salt Lake valley decades ago. We, Claudia, and Alfonso, began working in small kitchens in the Salt Lake downtown area. We had to first learn English and then each job of the kitchen. Beginning in the back of the kitchen washing dishes and then onto helping prepare food before we gained skills in a professional kitchen as a cook. 

As our careers progressed in the food industry our family also grew. It was a lot of work building skills and a family at the same time. However, it was a blessing in disguise! Two of our children became vegetarians and inspired us to learn how to prepare new food to feed our ever-growing family, and of course it had to be Mexican food. We later felt we were ready to take the plunge and open a new business and bring our home-style cooking to our restaurant, Santo Taco. It is our hope that you taste every effort and experience we had in our careers and in our life experiences.

I love cooking and parties!  I loved it so much and wanted to learn all I could about food and cooking so, I went to culinary school.
