From art and film to a thriving international food scene, Park City is as dedicated to culture as it is to world-class recreation. Come for the famous Kimball Arts Festival, the open-air culinary extravaganza at Savor the Summit, or Park City Institute’s cultural lineup, featuring speakers like Maureen Dowd and Fran Leibowitz. To see Park City at its cultural peak, visit during the Sundance Film Festival in January.
As the world’s largest independent film showcase, the Sundance Film Festival brings some of the most innovative storytellers to Park City every January for a 10-day celebration of film, journalism, new media and creative projects. Your concierge can help you reserve tickets, although many guests see films through the same-day waitlist option, a long-standing local tradition. Many roundtables and lounges are open to the public.
Headlined by the Sundance Film Festival and nationally recognized Kimball Arts Festival, Park City hosts a year-round festival calendar filled with arts, music, local food, World Cup sporting events and family fun. Get inspired by the innovation-themed Thin Air Festival, find fresh vegetables at the local Farmer’s Market, or bring the kids to the summer-long Park Silly Sunday Market. No matter what time of year you visit, you’ll find that Park City has a reason to celebrate!
Having built the Egyptian Theatre while still a mining town, Park City has always valued performing arts. Today, the town hosts a year-round calendar of stage performances at the still-standing Egyptian, live outdoor music at Deer Valley Resort, the Park City Film Series, and a diverse lineup of music, lecture and dance at Park City Institute.
Between its rich mining history and heritage as an Olympic destination, Park City has a colorful past best told by its landmark museums — the Park City Museum on Main Street and the Alf Engen Ski Museum at the Utah Olympic Park. Both offer an immersive peek into the lives and events that have shaped Park City.
With more than 150 restaurants and dozens of bars on Main Street alone, Park City is a foodie’s ski town. Can’t-miss experiences include the ski-in High West Distillery, straight-from-the-fire raclette at Deer Valley’s Fireside Dining (after a horse drawn sleigh ride), and rustic-chic comfort food like beef cheek sliders or honey pork cornbread with creative cocktails at Handle on Main Street.
