About Utah Arts Festival

From live music and dance performances, to visual arts, short films, literary workshops, and hands-on demonstrations, over four days each June the Utah Arts Festival is are truly where art comes alive, and where art fans come to unite. We make it our mission to produce an event that brings the community together in celebration of art. We act as a catalyst promoting creativity, inspiring imagination and helping to cultivate an appreciation for art in all its glorious and diverse forms. With the support of generations of loyal Festival-goers, during our 37 year history we have transformed from a small city event into a nationally recognized fine arts festival that draws an average of 86,000 patrons to Salt Lake City area each year. The Utah Arts Festival is committed to bringing the community together in celebration of art by providing direct, affordable access to a wide variety of artistic mediums in one central location. Fans of art come in many shapes, sizes, colors and forms. From athletes to gardeners, construction workers to accountants, chefs, sculptors, writers, readers, runners, rappers, you name it – art is for everyone and anyone can be a fan! Art Fans unite! June 20 -23, 2013 at Library Square.

What is Color Me Rad?

When Zoloft and balloon animals can't seem to raise your spirits, the best way to brighten your life is to run Color Me Rad 5K

Historically, running has only been acceptable when trying to escape the law, personal responsibility, the truth, and grizzly bears. 

Instead of running FROM something, get ready to run FOR something at this year’s Color Me Rad.  Run for the Hell of it.Color Me Rad is coming to a town near you with a tsunami of color that'll make colored tears of joy run down your cheeks and will renew your will to live.

After 5K of color bombardment, we guarantee your outlook will be brighter, your boyfriend will be more affectionate, your girlfriend will be less needy, the hair on your head will grow back and the hair on your back will fall out, your black and white TV will turn into 720p HD (I know you were hoping for 1080, but we organize races, we're not miracle workers), and your gray outlook will turn green like a spring morning.You’ll start off with a shirt as pure and white as your grandpa's dentures and you'll soak up enough color while running to change your skin tone forever.  You'll wind up looking like a pack of skittles – just make sure not to “taste the rainbow.”

So cast your DYE and get red in the face from Color Me Rad, and not from the embarrassment of passing up on the run of a lifetime.

How it works: Start out as clean as a newborn babe, and throughout the run, you'll coat your chaffing thighs with Color Bombs of bluegreenpinkpurple, and yellow until your face, shirt, and body come out silkscreened like a tie-dyed hippy on the other side.Each section of the run adds a new explosion of color to your clean, painter’s palate until you cross the finish line into a final blitzkrieg of color.  

What is the “color” in Color Me Rad?

You’re probably asking yourselves, “Is this really color being thrown at us or are the rainbows we’re seeing just God’s signal that it’ll never flood again?”Well I’m glad you asked.  This isn’t just smoke and mirrors.  This is non-toxic, non-rash-inducing, Kroger branded, colored corn-starch.  Subsidized by the government and processed in the good ol’ US of A, these blasts of starch will change your color, and your demeanor, but never your level of wellness.
