June – it’s the official start of summer and, in Park City, it’s when summer events, activities, and concerts really kick off.
Each year, Park City kicks off the summer with its largest outdoor dinner party, Savor the Summit. The event, organized by Park City Area Restaurant Association, is traditionally held each June on the Saturday closest to the Summer Solstice (June 21).
