About Amazing Earthfest


Celebrating National and State Parks, National Forests, Monuments and Public Lands of the American West.

“The Earth does not belong to man; Man belongs to the Earth. … All things
are connected. … Man did not weave the web of life, he is merely a strand in
it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself.” … Chief Seattle (1776 – 1866)

11th Annual 2017 Festival Theme: Preserving Dark Skies Over the Colorado Plateau!

Amazing Earthfest is a 501c3 nonprofit organization based in Kanab, Utah, established in 2007 to produce an annual public festival celebrating National and State Parks, National Forests, Monuments and Public Lands of the Colorado Plateau. Our educational festival brings enjoyment and learning opportunities to residents and visitors while enhancing community and economic development in Kane County, Utah. Thousands attend from across the nation and internationally.

Our events appeal to adults, youth and children interested in learning more about the natural world, Earth’s natural systems on the Colorado Plateau, plus Native as well as historical Pioneer cultures.  Amazing Earthfest programs offer inspirational content with scheduled activities in five categories:

  • Arts and Culture

Amazing Earthfest enables people to experience, appreciate and connect with Earth’s natural systems, enjoy high caliber creative and performing arts, outdoor learning, discovery and adventure. We serve area residents and visitors by helping to establish strong emotional connections to place and community.  Amazing Earthfest helps people build informed connections to the land through direct experience of its natural values including wildlife habitat and ecosystem functions, cultural sites, geology, and spectacular scenery. The full range of outdoor recreational and learning opportunities in Kane County is truly astonishing!  (Map)
