St George Arts Festival | April 18 & 19, 2014 | Things to Do Easter Weekend in St George
The St George Utah Art Festival will be celebrating it’s 35th year of bringing outstanding artists together for the community to enjoy. The St George Art Festival will be held on April 18th & 19th, 2014 from 10 am to 6 pm on Friday, 10 am to 6 pm on Saturday. Located in downtown St George at the new Town Square, on Main Street between Tabernacle and 100 South. Admission is free.
This event has been a tradition for many residents of St George 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.
More than 110 artists from 15 states will exhibit their original art. Randy Morris is this year’s featured artist. Randy has been a professional artist since 1981. He started his career by doing portrait work for friends and family. Since then he has evolved into creating “heartfelt, emotionally realistic images in watercolor.” Working to capture individuals doing ordinary everyday things and finding the artistic beauty in those occurrences.
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 crafts, face painting, the carousel, water feature & games. 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
