The St George Utah Art Festival will be celebrating it’s 33rd year of bringing outstanding artists together for the community to enjoy. The St George Art Festival will be held on April 6th & 7th, 2012 from 10 am to 7 pm on
This event has been a tradition for many residents to attend over the Easter weekend each year. This year promises to be better and more colorful than ever with the gorgeous spring flowers at Town Square as the backdrop for the event.
110 artists from 15 states will exhibit their original art. This year’s featured artist is painter Jeff Hepworth, whose artwork is featured on the poster this year. A variety of music will also be featured on two different stages around the festival.
There will also be a children’s area which features a whole new look this year. The crafts will be nature themed and there will be the addition of puppetry added to the list of activities. Other activities include face painting, a crowd favorite, unique hairdos, crafts and children’s performances. The new St George Carousel will be operating this year also, which will add an element of fun to the event.
One of my favorite things about the St George Art Festival is, of course, the food vendors! There will be plenty of booths offering a variety of foods from Greek, Thai, barbecue, Indian tacos, ice cream, hot dogs, scones, crepes and funnel cakes to name a few.
If you happen to be in town for Easter weekend, be sure to stop by and check out the festival. It’s a great way to get a feel for the community and the city. For more information all 435-627-4500
