Giant dinosaurs romping around the 2019 Utah Arts Festival!?

Not since the late Cretaceous Period have there been dinosaurs alive in Utah…until now!

From June 20-23, the Utah Arts Festival welcomes Saurus, a mobile street theater experience featuring huge dinosaurs (16 feet tall and 24 feet long) roaming through the Festival grounds. Produced by the internationally renowned Close-Act Theater, the playful Sauruses are controlled by performers (on stilts) who are concealed in extraordinary costumes. Festival-goers will stand in awe as the Sauruses mingle among the crowds and saunter through the Festival daily at 4pm, 6pm, and 8pm.

The Utah Arts Festival is like no other festival. Grab your friends and go! It runs Thursday, June 20 through Sunday, June 23, from Noon to 11pm on Library Square, 400 South and 200 East in downtown Salt Lake City. Visit for more information.
