Park City Summer Event Preview

If you’ve spent much time in Park City, you know that the excitement doesn’t stop just because the slopes are closed for the season. In fact, summer brings an abundance of fun, family-friendly arts and culture activities from festivals and markets to special events like Savor the Summit and 4th of July to fill up your calendar.

Here are a few to keep an eye on:

  • May 24th marks the first Wednesday of the Farmer’s Market held at the Park City Resort Canyons, just off Highway 224. Traditionally this seasonal market opens the first Wednesday in June, but this year opening day is a full two weeks early and will be kicked off with a performance by Rich Wyman. Opening day runs from noon-5pm. Subsequent weeks, the market hours are 12pm-6pm through the last Wednesday in October.
  • June 4th marks the start of the Park Silly Sunday Market on historic Main Street. This market operates from 10am-5pm every Sunday from June 4 – September 17. It’s an eco-friendly market and street festival showcasing different vendors week to week. From arts and crafts to antiques, music, prepared foods, and fruits and vegetables, there’s something for everyone at Park Silly.

  • Also in June, join Savor the Summit, Park City’s largest outdoor dinner party. On Saturday, June 17th, tables will be lined up along Main Street. Participating restaurants offer special menus, often including food and wine pairings. Join your neighbors for this lively event that includes food, drink, and live music in the picturesque setting of a Park City summer.

  • Celebrate Independence Day in Park City with a variety of special events, including a 5K run, pancake breakfast, and the 4th of July parade on Main Street that has become a destination event for many.

  • Don’t leave Park City so soon after the 4th of July activities because just a few days later, from July 6-9 is the 13th Annual Park City Food and Wine Classic. This special event includes food and wine tastings, educational seminars, and the chance to mingle with tried and true artisans, as well as up-and-comers in the world of good food and wine.
