Dysart Festival of the Arts Planned for March 9


DYSART SCHOOLS - The Dysart Unified School District, in partnership with Germain Honda of Surprise, will host the Dysart Festival of the Arts on Saturday, March 9, 2024.  The festival will take place from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. at Valley Vista High School, 15550 N Parkview Place, Surprise. The festival is free to attend and is open to the public.   

The festival will showcase the visual and performing arts programs from sixteen elementary schools, four middle schools, and four high schools in the Dysart Unified School District.  The day will be packed with back-to-back performances on multiple stages including various dance performances, theatre troops, choirs, and bands. The elementary, middle school, and high school visual arts programs will host two art showcases including 2D and 3D pieces, as well as a chalk art exhibition along the path of the festival.   

Some of the event highlights include the Arts Experience area, sponsored by Ottawa University Arizona.  The Arts Experience offers multiple hands-on opportunities for attendees to participate in the arts including dance workshops, bucket drumming, keyboard labs, virtual reality arts field trips and hands-on art projects. New this year is the addition of Adaptive Art Experiences, a hands-on immersive arts experience for individuals and families that may need accommodations or a sensory friendly experience. This adaptive experience is sponsored by Dysart Special Education PTSA.

This year's festival is proud to host over 60 arts vendors, food trucks and community partners.   These artisans will have their products on display for purchase. Visit for more details or a list of performances, vendors and food trucks.
