A Visit to the 2022 Utah Arts Festival in Salt Lake City

After a two-year Covid hiatus, the Utah Arts Festival has returned to downtown Salt Lake City, June 23 – 26, with six stages, more than 170 artists and 200 performances. Here’s a taste:


Artists of all mediums show off their talent, ensuring you’ll be able to find something for everyone’s creative tastes.

There are plenty of options to cool off in the summer sun with unique snack offerings such as Nuku’s frozen kabobs drizzled with chocolate.


Or try The Rolling Pineapple’s delightful frozen drinks.


Terry Scopes and Abigail Crow paint delicate florals so lifelike the singing garden in Alice in Wonderland comes to mind.


The face-painting booth is situated right next to the interactive Art Yard, ensuring littles and adults alike have a blast.


And if you’re in the mood for live entertainment look no further than poet Chelsea Guevara or musicians Daniel Weldon (with Ryan Hawthorne) warming up the stages that will be filled with a plethora of artists until 11 pm.

  1. What a delightful piece! Can’t make the fest this year and almost feel I’ve been there, done that. Thanks, Heather Hopkins! (Please keep your cat out of the foothills — hungry mountain lions be there!) (Cool that you have a camping cat, though.)
