Tooele Arts Festival
After a one year hiatus, the Tooele Arts Festival came back stronger than ever in 2012 thanks to amazing visual artists, fantastic culinary delights, great entertainment, and – of course – wonderful patrons who gladly braved the wind to take in the sights, sounds, and tastes of this premier event.
With a rich history dating back to 1985, the Tooele Art’s Festival has drawn artists from around the country. Patrons of the festival are never disappointed when they come in search of one-of-a-kind artwork, including paintings, jewelry, ceramics, photographs, sculptures, and much more.
This year, the children’s art yard will again provide hands-on activities for little artists and their parents, the 5K on Saturday will be a great opportunity to burn off the calories from the funnel cake eaten on Friday night, and the stage entertainment will be top notch. The Tooele Arts Festival is also excited to partner with the Tooele City Arts Council who will be hosting the first-ever plein art contest. There will be something for everybody!
The festival takes place in the Tooele City Park. The pedestrian only festival grounds include open-air booths surrounded by large and shady trees; a patio and main entertainment stage featuring a variety of musical acts throughout the weekend. The festival is open Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and all aspects of it are free! We’ve even asked Mother Nature to dial the wind back to a gentle breeze this year.
Please note: Although pets will not be permitted on the festival grounds, properly marked service animals will be welcomed.
