The St. George Art Festival began 36 years ago to showcase artists who lived in St. George. Since then it has expanded to include over 110 artists from hundreds of entries throughout the United States. This year’s festival will be held Friday, April 3rd and Saturday, April 4th at the scenic Town Square, a park with its carousel, fountains, splash pad and waterfall, flower gardens, and historic sites. The festival has a community appeal, for both artists and the 30,000 plus annual visitors on this busy Easter weekend.
