The 42nd annual Utah Arts Festival is scheduled for June 21 – 24 2018 at the Library Square in downtown Salt Lake City. More than 160 visual artists from across the country are juried in to participate in our Artists Marketplace. 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 kick off the summer in Utah each June. More than 80,000 patrons enjoy four days of award-winning fine arts in the Artist Marketplace, live performances on five stages, street theater, a fine arts exhibition, a film program, children’s art and culinary arts.
The mission of the Utah Arts Festival is to promote the arts and enhance the quality of life in Utah through the production of an annual outdoor, multi-disciplinary event in downtown Salt Lake City. We strive to maintain the highest artistic quality in our production and programming, represent excellence among a range of artistic mediums, and promote an appreciation for fine art while encouraging innovation in the field, and supporting non-traditional, contemporary works.
