Groovefest American Music Festival is an American multi-day music festival held in Cedar City, Utah. The festival is held each year at the end of June. It is a five-day festival that is dedicated to American music, with genres including blues and folk, bluegrass, country, Americana, and jazz.

The first Groovefest American Music Festival was held in 2001. It took place in the parking lot behind what is now Main Street Grill. In 2002 it was moved to Main Street Park in Cedar City and has occurred there ever since. As a tribute to the 10 year anniversary, in 2011, the promoters featured not only repeat performers but brought back performers from nearly every year of Groovefest.

Past notable artists have included Trampled by Turtles, Pert Near Sandstone, Richmond Fontaine, Great American Taxi, 56 Hope Road, and Bastard Sons of Johnny Cash.
