SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4) — With summertime right around the corner, one of our state’s most anticipated events — the 2023 Utah Arts Festival — is setting up for another unforgettable season.

Held from June 23-25 at Library Square in downtown Salt Lake City, the outdoor festival is considered the largest outdoor arts event in Utah with attendance exceeding 70,000 visitors every year.
