One of the great things about living in Cedar City is that we are more or less the hub of Southern Utah. We are the Gateway to Utah's National Parks. This Festival isn't in Cedar City, but rather in Escalante. It will take place Friday and Saturday. The Escalante Canyons Art Festival is held in Escalante, Utah.
Some of the Festival events feature the Plein Air painting competition, a fine arts and crafts exhibition and sale. There will be lectures, poetry and discussions about Everett Ruess.
There will also be exhibits, workshops, gallery open houses, walking tours of nearby historic buildings, and performances by cowboy poets, dance groups and musicians. For more information: http://www.escalantecanyonsartfestival.org
