Festival of the Arts


Festival of the Arts

SATURDAY • MARCH 26, 2022 • 10AM-2PM


On March 26, 2022, the Dysart Unified School District will be holding the annual Dysart Festival of the Arts.  The festival will take place from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. at Valley Vista High School. This event will showcase the visual and performing arts programs from 16 elementary schools, four middle schools, four high schools, and a preschool in the Dysart Unified School District.  

The Dysart Arts Festival will be a day jam packed with performances on multiple stages to include various dance troops, theatre troops, choirs and bands.   The elementary, middle school, and high school visual arts programs will be hosting two showcases to include both 2D and 3D pieces.  

In addition to all the wonderful performances, we will be hosting an Arts Vendor Fair for people to peruse and shop from local artists.  
Lastly, in case all these wonderful performances and showcases cause you to work up an appetite, food trucks will be on site to satisfy your taste buds.   This event is open to the public and is free to attend. We look forward to celebrating a day of Arts with our community, families and students.
