About The Festival

Each fall thousands of art enthusiasts and families have been making their way to Kayenta Art Village for the annual three-day FREE art festival in Ivins. Not only do festival goers enjoy spectacular art, they are also treated to stunning desert vistas, culinary delights from festival vendors, a beer and wine garden, live music, and Kayenta’s own delightful Xetava Gardens Café.

Guests will have the opportunity to visit a collection of over 50 juried, regional and national artists who specialize in sculpture, painting, jewelry, ceramics, wood, metal, and other media. “The quality of art and extent of creative expression at the Festival is extraordinary. Combined with the Art Village setting and backdrop of Ivins red mountain, it is truly a special experience,” states Foundation Chair, Rob Goodman.

The Art in Kayenta Festival hosts a silent auction featuring the original work from the attending artists and offerings from local businesses. Festival guests will have the exclusive opportunity to bid on selected art pieces. The auction is hosted by the nonprofit Kayenta Arts Foundation, with proceeds benefiting Center For the Arts at Kayenta (CFAK).
