2021 Utah Arts Festival

The festival vibes are back in 2021! This year the Utah Arts Festival will be held on August 27 – 29. Revel in live music from local and national bands, watch a poetry slam, catch a short film, discover new local visual artists, watch the creation of a graffiti mural, and visit our Creative Zone to make your own artistic creation. Then, enjoy local food, adventurous treats and craft beverage vendors.

This year the Festival will include almost 100 visual artists, seven performing venues of national and local musicians, dance performers, urban artists and literary artists, plus musical commissions, opera performances, film screenings and culinary arts. And roll up your sleeves to make your own craft projects in the Creative Zone.

New in 2021 is our Friday Soul Party, in collaboration with KRCL. Get your dance on all day with national and local performers, including headliner The Nth Power, Will Baxter Band and more. Other musical headliners on Saturday and Sunday include Las Cafeteras and Jeff Crosby and the Refugees.

Buy digital tickets online ahead of time and receive a QR code that can simply be scanned from their phone or paper print out at any of the entrances. There’s no need to wait in line to buy tickets. Tickets can be purchased ahead of time at uaf.org/tix.
