Festival of the Arts

The Dysart Festival of the Arts, originally scheduled for March 28, 2029 has been canceled.  ​

Festival of the Arts


On March 28, 2020, the Dysart Unified School District will be holding the second 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 all twenty elementary schools and four high schools 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 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, the Dysart Education Foundation 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.


We are currently looking for sponsors, business vendors, arts and crafts vendors and food trucks to participate in the festival.   We saw 4,500 attendees at last year’s Festival, and are estimating an increase in attendance and participation this coming year. This community event is a great opportunity to showcase your business/organization.  

If you are interested in becoming a sponsor, business vendor, arts and crafts vendor or food truck please click on the link below to learn more about the various opportunities.   Please contact Kara Poling at [email protected] for further questions.
