Festival of the Arts

This year’s festival promises to be a spectacular celebration of the arts. This event will showcase the visual and performing arts programs from 16 elementary schools, 4 middle schools, 4 high schools, and the Growing Minds Preschool in the Dysart Unified School District. 

We expect at least 9,000+ attendees. The Dysart Arts Festival will be a full day featuring performances on multiple stages including various dance troops, 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. 

In addition to the wonderful performances, we will host an Arts Vendor Fair for people to peruse and shop from local artists. Last year was the first year of our “Arts Experience” area, offering multiple hands-on opportunities for attendees to participate in the arts including dance workshops, bucket drumming, keyboard labs, 3D arts field trips and art projects. NEW this year will be the addition of Adaptive Art Experiences for our community and students with disabilities. Lastly, as you work up an appetite, food trucks will be onsite to satisfy your taste buds. This event is open to the public and is free to attend. We look forward to celebrating a day of Arts with our community, families, and students.
