Held on Park City’s Historic Main Street, the Park Silly Sunday Market opens for the season on June 4 at 10:00 AM and continues every Sunday through September 17.  Admission is free. 

While Park City is often recognized as a world-class winter resort destination, summers here are truly magical.  Perfect temperatures, 400+ miles of easy-access trails, outdoor deck dining galore, and let us not forget the plethora of live music and outdoor concert venues.  Park City and Summit County’s live music scene is booming, and includes something for every budget (some are FREE!) and every taste. 

Hosted by the Park City Gallery Association, the Last Friday Gallery Stroll, is a fun (and free) monthly community event dedicated to highlighting artists and special exhibits at art galleries throughout town.  Park City’s art scene continues to thrive, offering a robust variety of unique art collections from local, national, and international artists. On the last Friday of each month, 19 members of the Park City Gallery Association open their doors for visitors and locals alike to enjoy light refreshments and to admire their latest art installations.
