The Urban Arts Festival is a FREE community event organized by the Utah Arts Alliance. Started in 2011, the Urban Arts Festival has become one of the most unique and exciting events of the year in Salt Lake City. Last year’s festival drew over 20,000 patrons, and showcased hundreds of artists, performers, and musicians. City Weekly has named the Urban Arts Festival the “Best Indie Art Event in Utah!” 

In 2015 the festival will once again be held at the Gateway Center, allowing the event to welcome a growing number of artists and attendees. This event is a full day and evening celebration of urban and artistic culture for the community, art lovers, and families. The festival features artists, music, dance, skateboarding, film, live street art demonstrations, and more!

THE URBAN ARTS FESTIVAL EXPERIENCE INCLUDES:
- Over 100 artists displaying and selling everything from paintings, photography, and prints to jewelry, clothing, and sculpture.
