The Utah Arts Festival's annual poker tournament starts noon, October 12th at Piper Down Pub. Play poker, win prizes, support the arts! 

Whether you’re a poker pro or a beginner we invite you to come enjoy a Saturday afternoon with us in support of the Utah Arts Festival. Five pre-qualifying tournaments will take place leading to a match-up between the best-of-the-best at “The Final Table” during the 2020 Masquerade Party. The first, second and third place winners from each tournament will qualify for a seat at “The Final Table.”

1st Place Winner of “The Final Table” will receive:

  • $200 gift card for Southwest Airlines
  • Two tickets to see a Los Angeles Rams home game during the 2020-21 season courtesy of Jeff Neal – Coldwell Banker Real Estate. Available game options to be determined.

The suggested donation for a seat at a pre-qualifier is $20. Opportunities to “re-up” and add additional points are available for a suggested donation of $10 each. All donations made during the pre-qualifying tournaments are tax-deductible and count toward our Friends with Benefits program. Prizes and opportunity drawings will be offered throughout the afternoon courtesy of our partners.
