Kanab will host its 11th annual Amazing Earthfest on May 14-20. It includes arts and culture, healthy living events, documentary film screenings, hiking, mountain biking, and lectures on science and the land.
The free festival (donations appreciated) celebrates the national and state parks, national forests, national monuments and public lands of the American West. Organizers hope the educational events will stimulate the imagination and connect people to southern Utah's natural wonders.
