The Show

The 48th annual Utah Arts Festival is scheduled for June 28 - 30, 2024 at Library Square in downtown Salt Lake City. The Utah Arts Festival is the largest, outdoor, multi-disciplined event held in Utah. Having garnered numerous awards internationally, nationally and locally, the Festival remains one of the premiere events that kicks off the summer in Utah each June. Patrons enjoy three days of award-winning fine arts in the Artist Marketplace, live performances on five stages, street theater, fine arts exhibition, a film program, children's art and culinary arts.

The Utah Arts Festival is working to ensure we balance tradition and innovation. The number of consecutive years an artist has participated in the Utah Arts Festival will be taken into consideration as part of the final selection process. The Utah Arts Festival reserves the right to “rest” an artist for one year after three consecutive years of participation.

Not interested in performing, but would love to be involved in the selection process? If you are interested in being on one of our jury selection committees, and would like to be part of the process of selecting artists for the 2024 show, please fill out the jury interest form.
