The Utah Arts Festival Will Return to Salt Lake City This June

Salt Lake City, UT

The Utah Arts Festival is set to delight visitors once again with its vibrant array of artistic pieces and dynamic programming. From Friday, June 28th, to Sunday, June 30th, downtown Salt Lake City’s Library Square will transform into a bustling hub of artistic energy. 

At the heart of the festival is a celebration of visual arts, spotlighting the works of over 170 artists, from traditional paintings and sculptures to cutting-edge installations and multimedia projects. Visitors can explore the artist booths, engage with the creators, and purchase unique pieces. 

In addition to visual arts, the festival offers a dynamic lineup of live performances across multiple stages. From local musicians and dancers to internationally renowned acts, musical genres presented include classical, indie electro-pop, and more. This year’s headliners include Steely Dead, Seo Jungmin, and Andy Frasco & the U.N.

More than just a showcase for visual and performing arts, the Utah Arts Festival is also a hub of creativity and inspiration. Throughout the event, attendees can participate in hands-on art activities (including several for children at KidsFest), interactive installations, and workshops led by professional artists. 

The Big Deal Bunch, a separately ticketed event, is a unique celebration with a Mad Hatter Tea Party theme. There will be live music, tea party treats, thirst-quenching beverages, and a Maddest Hat Contest, where attendees wear their most creative “Mad” hats. 

Tickets for the Utah Arts Festival are available online at the official festival website or at the event gates. Options include single-day admission, multi-day passes, and VIP experiences, with discounts available for students, seniors, and military personnel.
