Groovefest Music & Art Festival was born in Oregon in 1993 – the passion project of Tim and Lisa Cretsinger, owners of record store Groovacious. In 2000 the Cretsingers moved to Cedar City, Utah and shared their store and the festival concept with Southern Utah. Groovefest Music & Art Festival is a unique arts experience for Cedar City. The festival is now a seven day celebration of the arts and includes Groovekids, LitFest, Campfire Concert in the Canyon, kick-off and after hours concerts, two-days of free music, art and food in Main Street park and workshops for all community members! The festival is staffed by community volunteers and financially supported by local businesses, which makes this a true community effort and a wonderful experience for young and old alike. The Groovefest American Music & Art Festival is a seven day celebration of the arts and music – dedicated to American music, whether it is Blues & Folk, Bluegrass & Country Western, Americana, Jazz, Jam.
