2017 Must Attend Park City Summer Events
In late March we published a blog post with a few of our summer musts, but with Memorial Day, the unofficial start of summer, just days away we thought a preview of must attend summer events was in order.
Park Silly Sunday Market
Sundays, June 4 – September 17 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.
For more than a decade, the Park Silly Sunday Market has transformed lower Main Street almost every Sunday throughout the summer. This summer is no different as the Silly Market adds to the fun and attractions of Park City’s Main Street. Are you wondering what exactly a Silly Market is? According to parksillysundaymarket.com, it is a treasure box that features unique and eclectic-local and regional arts and crafts, music and performance art, antiques, imports and one-of-a-kind finds, delicious gourmet foods, and farmers market fruits and vegetables. It is as unique as our town.
*There will be no Park Silly Sunday Market Sunday, August 6 or August 13.
Savor the Summit
Saturday, June 17 6 pm
Many consider Savor the Summit as the kick-off to summer in Park City. It is without a doubt Park City’s largest outdoor dinner party. Participating restaurants plan unique menus and line the street with tables and decor. Even if you choose not to dine on the street, we highly recommend visiting Main Street on the evening of Savor the Summit. Personally, I love seeing how each restaurant sets up their on-street experience, many restaurants include live entertainment, and there is a not-to-be-missed cocktail garden on Heber Avenue.
4th of July
Park City’s 4th of July festivities are 2nd to none, and of course, the heart of the event takes place on Main Street with the annual 4th of July parade. You never know what you are going to see. Last year, one of Park City’s City Council members held her wedding during the parade! After the parade, we invite you to stop into any number of restaurants to cool down and grab some lunch before powering through the day. You might also shop a bit as many shops have holiday specials on the 4th of July.
Kimball Arts Festival
August 4 – 6
Park City’s Kimball Arts Festival has been taking place for 48 years. With a run like that they must be doing something right. The Arts Festival features all mediums of art and serves as the largest fundraiser for the Kimball Arts Center enabling the center to offer exhibits and exhibitions free to the public year-round.
In case you are still looking for something to do, Park City’s Egyptian Theatre programs every weekend of the year, and of course Park City’s bars and restaurants deliver an experience event worthy regularly. The Park City Gallery Association hosts monthly Gallery Strolls, and we happen to know a place or two to find your summer event wardrobe while we’re at it. Yes, Historic Park City really is the ‘Main Attraction.'
