Project Green River is an outdoor arts festival on Broadway in Green River, Utah. Festivities include:
regional rock bands, installation and fine art, and a screening of short films. All of the attractions are held on
Broadway where there will be one main outdoor performance stage on South Broadway and two indoor art galleries
(one at Desert Flavors and one in Epicenter). Project Green River, other than being a celebration of music and
culture, is an opportunity to bring attention to the Epicenter’s mission of providing affordable housing and small
business development resources for the residents of Green River. See projectgreenriver.org for more information.
