Art In Kayenta, now in it’s 19th year, was created in order to enliven the greater community, promote local artists and artisans from around the country, broaden support from the wider community in southern Utah and foster travel and tourism to Washington county and the cities of Ivins, Santa Clara, St. George, Bloomington and Washington.

A Full Weekend of Family Fun with A Variety of Juried Artisans, Silent auction, Food vendors, beer & wine garden–plus live Entertainment!

Every fall for the past eighteen years, thousands of people have been making their way to “Art in Kayenta,” a three-day art festival in Ivins. There are lots of reasons to attend! For art lovers, it’s being able to wind their way through booth after booth and gallery after gallery of unique original art and wares. For others, it’s relaxing in the beer and wine garden, sipping wine while savoring fresh food from local vendors; others opt for the tasty entrées Xetava Gardens Café serves up. But for many it’s enough just to enjoy the gorgeous weather and stunning red-rock scenery. This year’s “Art in Kayenta” Festival is expected to draw our largest crowd yet. With safety protocols in place, masks and sanitation stations available and socially distanced walking areas and seating, it will be a welcome change from the stay home-stay put cycle.

Art in Kayenta offers one-of-a-kind creations from over 40 juried, regional and national artists who specialize in media ranging from sculpture to painting, jewelry to ceramics, wood to metal, and more. Each year, artists participate in a silent auction featuring their fabulous creations! Festival attendees will have the exclusive opportunity to bid on —and hopefully win—selected art pieces. The auction is hosted by the Kayenta Arts Foundation with proceeds benefiting the beautiful, 3-year-old Center for the Arts at Kayenta theater.
