Arts & Entertainment

Entrada at Snow is the gateway to Tuachan Ampitheater and Snow Canyon State Park. Kayenta's Art Village is a short distance with many local artist shops and Kayenta's Center for the Arts where you can attend many different productions.

Tuacahn Amphitheater

"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.

Kayenta's Center for the Arts

The Center For the Arts at Kayenta (CFAK), located in Ivins, Utah was built with the grass roots support of community members who envisioned a vibrant, intimate, professional theater venue nestled in the majestic red rock mountains of the Kayenta community. Many in Southern Utah were united by their passion for diversity in "The Arts" and thus the creation of the Kayenta Arts Foundation became a reality. Soon support from the local business community, government entities and foundations began to grow. All saw the need for an open, creative, inclusive, educational performing and visual arts Center. This region of the country is unparalleled in beauty and recreation and the need for expansion in the arts was real. The vision of Center For the Arts at Kayenta is to be a premier venue where diverse artistic endeavors and education can flourish. Today a full range of over 50 diverse theatrical events and festivals are held annually inside the beautiful balck box theater as well as outside in the Kayenta Art Village.

Kayenta's Art Village

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.

St. George Art Museum

The leading Museum in the St. George area features fine exhibits of many cultures and times, as well as the work of local and regional artists.

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. 

Electric Theater

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.

St. George Opera House and Social Hall

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.
