FROM THIN AIR
Tap into the talents of creative thinkers and determined doers for three days at the 3rd annual Thin Air Innovation Festival, April 5-7. This cross-industry mash-up brings together diverse perspectives and leaders from retail, tech, sports and recreation, entertainment, healthcare, finance and beyond to share experiences and launch new ideas.
Free Fun for All: Join the Festival celebration on Friday, April 5 on Main Street. The festivities begin at 5pm with Youth Sports Alliance’s 2018 Winter Olympic homecoming parade for the 100-plus, Utah-based athletes returning from the PyeongChang Games and continue with a free concert by Citizen Cope at 6:30pm on lower Main Street.
THE KIDS ARE ALRIGHT
Give your little ones a taste of music with the weekly Music and Movement hour at Park City Library. Offered each Wednesday at 11am, it’s a lively hour where toddlers, preschoolers and their caregivers explore a variety of musical instruments, song, dance and related books. Kids and their adults are encouraged to get excited about music and make some noise!
GET YOUR DAILY DOSE!
Whether you’ve spent the day shredding the slopes, strolling through galleries, or reading by the fire, there’s lots of free live music in the mountains to top off your day!
Enjoy live acoustic music from 3-6pm on Friday, Saturday and Sunday throughout ski season as you enjoy après ski refreshment at Deer Valley Resort’s EBS Lounge.
Or head over to Park City Mountain Resort for great free music programmed by Mountain Town Music, a celebrated community partner that programs over 300 shows throughout Summit County, UT each year. From March 24-April 8 during Park city’s annual Spring Gruv, there will be free music every afternoon with concerts at indoor and outdoor venues at Park City Mountain and Canyons Village. The week-long celebration of spring is bookended with an Easter Egg Hunt on April 1, and the hilarious annual Pond Skimming Contest on April 8, where contestants in crazy costumes try to glide across a frigid pond at the bottom of a slope.
