The St. George Art Festival began in 1980 showcasing the many artists who call St. George their home. Over the years it has expanded to include over 110 artists juried from hundreds of entries from throughout the United States. This festival has regional appeal for both artists and festival goers. Displaying thousands of original works of art, the festival is punctuated with pageantry, music and food. Townsfolk 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 takes place in the beautiful Town Square, the centerpiece of the Historic District. The Art Festival is known for consistently outstanding artwork, and does all it can to send the message to artists that they are appreciated and valued guests. We guarantee that artists are treated with the respect they deserve. We know it is expensive to travel, so we like to help out with a hospitality room, Friday morning breakfast, water and delicious fruit and vegetable plates delivered to you at your booth each day. In addition, we provide courtesy space for motor homes and RV parking near the Festival site. St. George is known as a warm, friendly city. We want your stay here to be the highlight of your year.
