Event Listings are UTAH TIME, (Mountain Daylight Time), unless otherwise noted!  Please allow sufficient drive time for events outside Kanab City limits. Remember, Arizona remains on standard time all year round. So for example, from April thru October, 9:00 AM in Utah is 8:00 AM in Arizona.

A wonderful range of  fascinating events for the 12th Annual 2018 Amazing Earthfest is now under development! Complete 2018 Festival event information will become available as events are confirmed at the five event category links above, and with a PDF link below. Scroll down on this page to see all our 2018 festival events listed in chronological order by date and time. If you haven’t attended southern Utah’s Amazing Earthfest before, a memorable experience awaits you! Browse our “Past Events” pages now!

Our themes for the 12th annual Amazing Earthfest 2018 are, TO COMMEMORATE THE 50TH ANNIVERSARIES OF THE NATIONAL HISTORIC AND SCENIC TRAILS, AND THE WILD AND SCENIC RIVERS ACTS, AND TO PRESERVE STARRY SKIES OVER THE COLORADO PLATEAU. Look for a wide range of activities focused on historic & scenic trails and majestic rivers, plus night sky events including talks, constellation viewing, stories and sidewalk astronomy.  Did you know? Utah has approximately 81,899 miles of river, of which only 169.3 miles are designated as wild & scenic—2/10ths of 1% of the state’s river miles! And Utah has some of the darkest nighttime skies anywhere in the lower 48 states!  Torrey, Utah became the state’s first International Dark Sky City and we hope many more will follow. Our moon, stars, the Milky Way, planets and constellations are dazzling, like lanterns in the clear black southern Utah sky.

Until 2018 events are confirmed and posted, check out our 2017 schedule to get some ideas and pique your inspiration!
