Projections Show 2011 Utah Arts Festival Attendance Up from Last Year’s
Salt Lake City, UT: Initial Utah Arts Festival attendance projections show that 2011 Festival attendance has increased 15 to 20% from last year. Web traffic on www.uaf.org is also up 25 to 30% over the 4-day event.
Numbers have been tallied from overall earnings. The increase in funds raised from the annual Festival go directly to the artistic programs for next year’s Utah Arts Festival. “It’s been my goal to continually increase the caliber of fine art seen here,” says Festival Director Lisa Sewell, “Having so many people enjoy what is going on here at Library Square ensures that next year’s festival programming will be even better.”
The Utah Arts Festival is celebrating its 35th Anniversary, presenting more that 159 visual artists, more that 100 performing artists, a film festival, literary program, street theater, dance and more.
The Festival closes today (SUNDAY) at 11 p.m. on Library Square with headlining acts Blame Sally, The Del McCoury Band and Big Sam’s Funky Nation.
