13th Annual Amazing Earthfest 2019

by Rich Csenge, Founding President and Festival Director

Deep in southern Utah, the serene outdoor adventure destination of Kanab rests upon the highly scenic western edge of the Colorado Plateau where some of America’s most majestic and richly hued public lands have found protection. Vermilion cliffs of sandstone, dramatically rising a thousand feet from downtown, adorn the City’s northern, western, and eastern horizons. National & State Parks, National Forests and Monuments abound here in a moderate, welcoming climate, perfectly suited for outdoor adventure. Rugged geology, scenic trails, and dinosaur tracks in splendid, unspoiled landscapes, beckon visitors to begin each new day on the trail. Expectations for a memorable, quiet recreation experience at Amazing Earthfest are well-founded!

This unique, educational community festival celebrates America’s National and State Parks, National Forests, Monuments and Public Lands not with things to buy, but things to do. Experiential learning events enrich the spirit, inspire wonder, and deepen understanding of the natural world and the heroic conservation legacy that preserves America’s public estate for present and future generations. Beginning Mother’s Day each year, the distinctive Amazing Earthfest features more than 30 fascinating scheduled events, offering a solid week of discovery and enjoyment. 

Now in its 13th consecutive year, Earthfest began with the visionary idea that wild federal lands managed in trust for, and freely accessible to all Americans, could catalyze civic and personal healing in a modern society wandering amidst the sirens of excess consumption and artificial distraction. Earthfest thrives on the inspiration of committed individuals who care deeply about our planet’s natural wonders as pure healing power in a complex ecology that sustains all forms of life, including us! Distinguishing this unique experiential learning festival are individuals and experts from regional nonprofit organizations, Bureau of Land Management, National Park and Forest Service: specialists who weave the preservation of natural landscapes, wildlife and ancient cultures into their daily lives.

Join others visiting southern Utah from around the nation and across the oceans in attending Amazing Earthfest to commemorate the centennial of Grand Canyon National Park and to explore the incredible natural clarity and darkness of night skies over the Colorado Plateau. Absorb the insights of local poets, get out on the trail to experience the solitude and majesty of America’s wild lands in Utah, and be energized by award winning documentary films of contemporary significance. Discover for yourself what makes wilderness irreplaceable and how richly it nourishes the spirit!

The 13th annual Amazing Earthfest offers all of this in a friendly rural setting sporting great hospitality, fine restaurants and limitless destinations nearby for self directed exploration. Volunteer opportunities are available during the festival. Make your travel plans and reservations with family and friends now! The nonprofit Amazing Earthfest receives support from state, county and local government, philanthropic foundations and nonprofits, area businesses and individuals.
