What was once an uneventful time of the year in the mountains is now chock-full of fun and festive events — from concerts and athletic competitions to parades, art fests, food fun and more. Here are
some events you won’t want to miss.
Park Silly Sunday Market
Back for its 17th season, the Park Silly Sunday Market is an ecofriendly, open-air market and street festival featuring arts and crafts, food and drink, live music, and activities for kids and adults from dozens of local artists, food artisans, crafters, musicians and more — plus, a climbing wall. It is, as the locals say, “where frivolous meets fabulous.”
Latino Arts Festival
Canyons Village will host the 2023 Latino Arts Festival, which is being presented by the Park City Arts Council and will be a colorful celebration of the Hispanic and Latino cultures of Peru, Chile, Colombia, Brazil, Mexico, Argentina and more, with art exhibits, artisanal goods and global cuisines.
Savor the Summit
A dinner table the length of Main Street is the centerpiece of Savor the Summit, an annual food and drink extravaganza that’s held outdoors, under the stars. It’s Utah’s biggest dinner party of the year and welcomes more than 2,500 guests and features cuisine from Park City’s best restaurants.
Hops on the Hill
Every Tuesday from mid-July to mid-August, beer lovers will gather on the deck at Stein Eriksen Lodge as the sun sets to enjoy summer suds from Utah’s craft breweries along with food pairings and live music.
Kimball Arts Festival
Art lovers won’t want to miss the 54th Kimball Arts Festival and the approximately 200 artists who come from 28 states and three countries to attend. In addition, there are food trucks, live music on two outdoor stages, artisan tasting tents, kids’ activities and more.
Kenny Loggins at the Deer Valley Concert Series
Singer-songwriter and multiple Grammy winner Kenny Loggins makes a stop at the Deer Valley Concert Series during his “This Is It” tour, which will be the artist’s final concert tour. Over the last four decades, his chart-topping songs have included “This Is It,” “I’m Alright,” “Footloose,” “Danger Zone” and so many others.
Park City Miners’ Day
Twenty-twenty-three marks the 125th annual Park City Miners’ Day, which honors the mining history and heritage of Park City, where 300 mines once operated. The day kicks off in City Park with a hearty breakfast that’s followed by the Bark City 5K Run, the Running of the Balls, the Miners’ Day parade, mining demonstrations, live music, and a beer and liquor garden with food trucks. There are also kids’ games and tours of Miners Hospital.
Tour des Suds
Tour des Suds is a fun and festive 7-mile mountain bike climb that begins at City Park and finishes at the top of Guardsman Pass. Some folks treat it like a legit competition and vie for awards, while others treat Tour des Suds as a crazy costume party on wheels. “Crazy costumes, crazy bikes is the concept,” say the organizers.
Park City Wine Festival
Centered at Canyons Village, the Park City Wine Festival is a food and wine lover’s dream come true as more than 100 wineries, distilleries, breweries, epicurean food purveyors and local restaurants gather for wine tastings, dinners, seminars, luncheons, outdoor adventures and more. Bring your sunscreen.
Park City Shot Ski
The Park City Sunrise Rotary Club and High West Distillery will host the 7th annual Park City Shot Ski where thirsty participants will assume their positions behind the communal shot ski on Main Street to throw one back. Past events featured more than 1,300 people using 515 shot skis positioned end- to-end and filled with High West Double Rye Whiskey. Cheers!
