The Dysart Unified School District holds an annual Dysart Festival of the Arts. The festival will takes place at Valley Vista High School. This event showcases 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 is 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 host two showcases to include both 2D and 3D pieces.

In addition to all the wonderful performances, Dysart hosts 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.
