Salt lake city s history minute the terrace ballroom


The Terrace Ballroom was a ballroom, located on 464 South Main Street, in Salt Lake City, Utah. During the 1930s, when it was called "Coconut Grove", there was no larger ballroom in the United States. Its name was originally changed in the 1940s to "Rainbow Randevu", before it settled in the 1950s to "Terrace Ballroom". When the Rainbow Randevu was taken over by the operators of Lagoon Amusement Park, a policy was in place excluding blacks; like the park itself, Robert E. Freed opened the ballroom to all people in the 1940s.

The ballroom has hosted concerts by many famous artists, including Kansas, Frank Zappa, Grateful Dead, Wishbone Ash, The Moody Blues, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, KISS, The Police, Alice Cooper, Janis Joplin, Jefferson Airplane & The Doors, among others.

The venue closed in 1981 and was demolished. The site is now occupied by a parking lot.
