Arts & Entertainment
"Tuacahn" comes from a Mayan word meaning "Canyon of the Gods." Built in the shadow of 1500-foot spectacular red rock cliffs, the Tuacahn Amphitheater and Center for the Arts was created to awaken the nobility of the human soul and transmit light and hope to people everywhere through arts and education.
The theater brings "Broadway in the Desert" to southern Utah! Throughout the warm months, this theatre company features Utah's finest actors (new and seasoned), in some of Broadway's greatest productions! The intimate, outdoor theater is always enhanced by the brilliant, natural red rock back drop. A night out at Tuachan is a night not soon forgotten.
The Kayenta Art Village is a growing enclave of art galleries, studios, theatre, art festival, restaurant, gift and coffee shop. Its array of arts-oriented enterprises offers fine art, gifts, photography, events, pottery, classes, yoga, gourmet food and coffee. An arts center, a retail center, or just a place to relax and explore, the Kayenta Art Village is open to the public and everyone is welcome.
Located across from the Main St. George Post Office in historic downtown St. George, the Museum is part of the beautiful Pioneer Center for the Arts Complex.
Formerly a sugar beet storage facility, the space has been transformed into an elegant showcase for the arts. In addition to the many programs and events that the Museum hosts, the Family Discovery Center has materials for kids to create their own art.
Located in the heart of historic downtown St. George on Tabernacle Street, we are a city owned facility that serves as a downtown anchor for the arts while collaborating with and supporting, promoting and fostering visual and performing arts groups and emerging artists, thus educating, strengthening and inspiring access and exposure to a diverse program of arts for our community.
The first public building built by the settlers was the St. George Hall. It was built in 1862 as a place of recreation, entertainment and education.
During the early 1900's to the mid-1920's, the Social Hall was called the "Opera House" because of the many operettas and vaudeville shows that were presented during host years. Most notable of these were Pinafore and Robin Hood.
The Social Hall/ Opera House functioned for 50 years as the center of Southern Utah's cultural activities. A generation of pioneers cast their heavy loads aside and laughed, cried smiled and cheered.
In the 1930's the Social Hall/Opera House was sold and used as a sugar beet seed cleaning plant for many years. Later, it was abandoned -- not a fitting end for such a grand lady. The laugher, once gone, has now returned to this historic place.
