Welcome to the Helper Arts, Music and Film Festival

image

The Helper Arts, Music and Film Festival has a rich history of twenty plus years bringing the arts to not only Helper, but surrounding areas as well. The Helper Arts, Music and Film Festival’s mission is to encourage art and culture in Carbon County, support the local artist community, stimulate and enrich the local economy through the arts, and to educate and give access to art for everyone, regardless of income level or art experience. The Festival endeavors to not only put on a great Festival, but to bring the arts to the community throughout the year as much as possible.

Supported by a committed group of volunteers, the Festival continues to evolve in order to provide a well-rounded experience to all patrons including but not limited to music, visual arts, photography, ceramics, woodworking, film and performance art. Over the course of the third weekend in August, patrons can enjoy great music, catch a film and purchase fine art! The Festival’s original purpose was focused on revitalizing Main Street and supporting local artisans. That focus has expanded into bringing art to local area schools via the SmART Program. Working closely with the Carbon School Board, a theme is selected and various students are selected to participate in creating art works displayed during the Festival.

The Festival now has a permanent home located at 69 South Main. This building is the oldest on Main Street and provides a permanent home for records, serves as a meeting location and is the management hub during the course of the Festival. This has been a significant upgrade for the Festival and allows for a centralized location before, during and after the Festival. This was a much-needed next step in maturing the Festival and getting to the “next level” in regards to management.
