Join us for the 2021 Escalante Canyons Art Festival – September 14-26.

Come celebrate the stunning public lands of Utah’s canyon country.  Hosted in Escalante, Utah – along Scenic Byway 12 – between Bryce Canyon and Capitol Reef National Parks, in the heart of Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument.  Plein air competitions, art exhibits and sales, workshops, demonstrations, arts and crafts fair, live music, guided walks, and much more.

After cancelling the 2020 festival due to Covid-19, the festival committee is pleased to host the event again in 2021 and has moved all festival programming outdoors. We will not host activities like the Speaker Series and Awards Reception this year, but instead we have added Roving Talks and an online art sales option. Online Art Sales begin Friday, Sept. 24 at 10 am.

Being at outdoor venues does not eliminate your risk for exposure to COVID; social distancing while outdoors helps. The best way to keep yourself and others safe is being vaccinated and wearing a mask. Wearing a mask at the festival is very much appreciated, supported and strongly encouraged, especially for individuals who have not been fully vaccinated; masks will be available onsite.

We look forward to hosting you in Escalante this September!
