Kayenta Arts Foundation is pleased to announce the 18th Annual Art in Kayenta festival!

ART IN KAYENTA • October 11, 12, & 13, 2019

A Full Weekend of Family Fun with Street Art, Art Galleries, Food, & 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.

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, one-year-old Center for the Arts at Kayenta theater.

Art in Kayenta is sponsored by the Kayenta Arts Foundation (KAF), a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting diverse arts in the region. This year’s festival celebrates the newly-opened Center for the Arts at Kayenta (CFAK). In fact, during its first year, CFAK presented more than 50 events and workshops to residents of the Southern Utah and surrounding communities. The Center is home to the Lorraine Boccardo Theatre, a 200-seat black box and concert stage, as well as spaces to accommodate meetings, receptions, seminars and rehearsals. As a collaborative arts community venue, the Center hosts a broad range of performing arts, plays, lectures, films, concerts, and educational opportunities for the Southern Utah area.
