Helper Arts Festival

2001 HELPER ARTS FESTIVAL Organizers for the 2001 Helper Arts Festival, which took place August 18th and 19th, were extremely pleased with this year’s event. During the festival, the historic mining town of Helper, Utah in Carbon County hosted close to sixty booths, including forty-two artists. The festival had approximately 8,000 people attend, a large portion of whom came from other areas, including the Wasatch Front, Southern Idaho, and the Western Slope of Colorado. A unique portion of the festival was the plein-air competition in which over sixty artists participated.

  1. It is thanks to the Helper Arts Festival that our film The Wayshower is now playing in Logan, Utah this coming March!! Weston Woodbury, from the Utah State Film club attended the festival and found out about the feature film that was filmed there in 2010. Thanks to the ongoing love and support from Jinni Fontana-Lund and the whole Helper community – word of our movie continues to spread – and now Weston has helped to secure screenings of The Wayshower at the fabulous Logan Arthouse and Cinema – 7pm daily on March 8th, 9th and 10th!!!
