Love Utah’s canyon country and supporting working artists and artisans? Make plans now to attend the premier art event of the Colorado Plateau – the 14th Annual Escalante Canyons Art Festival-Everett Ruess Days in late September 2017 in Escalante, Utah!  Escalante is off the beaten path  – along Utah’s only All American Road, Scenic Byway 12 – between Bryce Canyon and Capitol Reef National Parks, in the heart of Grand StaircaseEscalante National Monument.
