A Few Tips:
Take advantage of the variety of programs being offered- one of the unique aspects of Park City Food & Wine Classic is the variety of programs offered.  Do you enjoy yoga? Kick off your day with vinyasa flow yoga in the mountain air on Montage Deer Valley's Grand Lawn.  As part of Vino and Vinyasa, head to the deck of Apex at Montage post yoga for wine tasting and lunch.  If mountain biking is more your thing, the Food & Wine Classic offers Ride and Wine at Victory Ranch in Kamas, UT.  The day starts with a bike ride along Victory Ranch's beautiful single track with mountain views, followed by lunch and wine tasting at the Ranch's Freestone Lodge.

Dress appropriately- You will spend a ton of time on your feet throughout the Food & Wine Classic. Make sure you wear comfortable shoes that you can walk in for hours.  You don't want to miss the action due to aching feet.  Sunscreen is a must! Much of the event involves spending hours outside in the sun, so make sure you're covered.
Beer - Park City Food and Wine
City-wide Bus App- Park City's free bus system makes it easy to get around town, especially if you have indulged in a few too many wine tastings or just prefer not to drive.  To access real-time Park City bus information, visit go.parkcity.org.  Should you need a ride to an event outside of Park City, the Food & Wine classic offers other transportation options, as well.

Drink plenty of water- the town of Park City sits at roughly 6,900ft. and when not properly hydrated, the altitude can cause discomfort or sickness.  Between the altitude, the summer heat, and wine, beer, and whiskey tastings, it important to make sure you stay hydrated - you'll thank us in the morning!

Return to the area restaurants after the Classic- There are 12 Park City restaurants participating in the Food & Wine Classic.  Once you've checked them out for apps and tastings, make a reservation for lunch or dinner! It's not every day that you can get a sneak peak of a restaurant before making the decision to dine there.
