Development of the 2019 Schedule of Events for the 13th annual Amazing Earthfest is complete and all event descriptions are posted to this site!  Our themes are the Centennial of Grand Canyon National Park (1919 to 2019), and Preserving Starry Skies over the Colorado Plateau!  

Guided hikes, cycling and outdoor adventures, arts, science, ethics, astronomy, public land management, back-country exploration, community and sustainable living are all in the program at Amazing Earthfest. If you haven’t attended southern Utah’s Amazing Earthfest before, a memorable experience awaits you! Most events are free!

Dinner and a Movie every night! Live Folk Concert on Friday night! Our Documentary Film series is packed with informative and poignant stories you won’t want to miss! Every day during the festival Chef Mike at the Parry Lodge will prepare a delicious buffet-style selection of gourmet dishes, available from 5:30 to 7 PM in their spacious dining room. Beer and wine are available with dinner. It’s convenient. Dine at Parry, then walk over to the Old Barn Playhouse for an award-winning film!
