Friday, June,2023 : Utah Arts Festival Jeff Swinger/SwingmanPhoto

The Utah Arts Festival is a celebration of community where we revel in live music, poets and storytellers, film screenings, graffiti art, and an artist marketplace full of high-quality visual artists. It's a place to find your passion and gain inspiration; showcasing diverse independent artists and offering free, hands-on workshops.

Donations empower artists of all ages and backgrounds to pursue their passions, foster a vibrant artistic community and make it possible for us to provide dynamic, inclusive, and accessible programming. In return for your support and to thank you for being a Friend, you’ll receive access to three exclusive patios, giving you the best seat in the house for our most notable performances, plus admission to private events and special offers from our partners.
