GumptionFest is returning to Sedona for its eighth year on Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 7 and 8, at the Old Marketplace in West Sedona.

Jason Vargo, coordinator of GumptionFest, discusses his plan to primarily use local musicians and artists in the festival this year, which will be held at Old Marketplace Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 7 and 8, from noon to 10 p.m. with activities for the whole family.“So there was GumptionFest, we had this festival, and we did it the first year, and it was great, then we did it the next year, and it was cool, and we kind of just kept doing it,” GumptionFest Coordinator Jason Vargo said. “Some years it was big and well-planned, and others it was like, ‘oh, yeah, we’ll do GumptionFest,’ and we’d have four weeks to get it together.”

Since 2012, Vargo has taken the reins, planning and organizing GumptionFest after one of the other original organizers bowed out.

“Dylan Jung had the idea, he had the brainchild,” he said. “And we just went from there. He spearheaded it for the first six years.”
