Festival And Awards Program Showcase The Best Of Summerlin

The recent 20th anniversary of the Summerlin Festival of Arts was a resounding success, drawing more than 30,000 residents from throughout the valley to enjoy a newly reimagined festival that included more than 100 fine artists from across the country, live street arts, headline entertainment, delicious food, charitable groups and children’s activities.  This  incredible-two day event at Downtown Summerlin in the heart of the master-planned community marked the one-year anniversary of Downtown Summerlin and was the perfect way to celebrate both visual and performing arts in a dynamic setting, according to Danielle Bisterfeldt, marketing director, Summerlin.  “The Summerlin Festival of Arts has long been a staple of arts and culture in our community,” said Bisterfeldt.  


“With the infusion of headliners like Clint Holmes, Human Nature, and performances from ABSINTHE and Zarkana® by Cirque du Soleil®, the Festival set a new standard for excellence and fun.  It was a fantastic way to recognize Downtown Summerlin’s successful first year of operation as well as the arts in Las Vegas.”   

At the Festival, winners of the annual Best of Summerlin competition were announced following a three-week-long online voting process that generated more than 4,000 votes. This year’s Best of Summerlin winners included popular restaurants, a holistic salt therapy center, a veterinarian and a farmer’s market. See the complete list of winners at
