The Utah Arts Festival is the most significant outdoor art event in Utah with over 80,000 attendees each summer. With all of its local, national and international awards, the festival remains one of the premier occurrences that kicks off each June.
The Utah Arts Festival promotes arts through the production of an annual multi-disciplinary occasion in Salt Lake City. Organizers try to maintain the highest artistic quality in the program and production and to showcase fine art via supporting innovative, non-traditional, and contemporary works.
Value of admission gives you a chance to discover Utah's best artists: in slam poetry competitions and storytelling, jazz orchestras and symphonies, modern dance and ballet, fiction and nonfiction readings, and so much more.
The Utah Arts Festival is the event filled with unique atmosphere and fantastic music to be heard. During a few decades of its history, the fest has introduced guests to new musical legends like Mary Chapin Carpenter, Chris Robinson, Bela Fleck, Taj Mahal, Philip Glass, and MOMIX.
Picked by the jury of an event, the festival's art vendors sell a wide range of ceramics, digital 2D/3D mixed media, glass, fiber, graphics, printmaking, jewelry, drawing and pastels, and metalwork that will make you dizzy.
Let all the forms of art overwhelm you during the hot summer days in Salt Lake City at Library and Washington Squares.
