The St. George Art Festival began in 1980, showcasing the many artists who call St. George their home. Since then it has expanded to include over 110 artists juried from hundreds of entries from throughout the United States. Festival goers enjoy thousands of original works of art, live entertainment on two stages, a vibrant children’s area, and foods of all kinds. Over 30,000 residents and visitors from around the West converge in the beautiful town of St. George on Easter weekend, one of the busiest travel weekends of the year. The festival is set in the beautiful Town Square with its carousel, fountains and water features, flower gardens, and historic buildings.
