The St. George Art Festival added a few new things this year

The St. George Art Festival is back in April and will take over downtown on Easter weekend.

This will be the 43rd annual St. George Arts Festival and will be held April 15-16 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. in the historic town square.

“This is truly a can’t-miss event,” said Emily Reed, Director of Community Arts. “You have a juried art exhibition with over 100 artists – many of whom return every year – to display and sell their creations. You have the Kids Crafting Station, jam-packed with budding artists trying their hand at many different types of art projects. You have a wide variety of delicious food – and don’t forget the all day entertainment.

The St. George Art Festival drew crowds last April in its first iteration following the COVID-19 pandemic.  For 2022, the popular event is back for its 43rd year.

Attendees will have a variety of food truck options at the event as well as a kids’ area for families. St. George Races will also have their 1-mile Art-Attack race for the first time this year on April 16 at 8 a.m.

This year’s featured artists are Dianne and Doug Adams, who create upcycled and sculpted bells that are sold around the world.

“This annual event is one of the crown jewels of our city and one of the finest festivals in our part of the country,” said St. George City Council Member Dannelle Larkin. “It’s like entering an open-air museum. Once you’ve seen it, you’ll want to make sure to attend every year.
