Park City Events

With the exception of a few accurate classifications that are tough to deny—like breathtakingly beautiful and utterly unforgettable—Park City isn't so keen on labels. It's not a place for a specific type. You don't have to self-identify as a skier, movie buff, artist, or foodie to come here, though, if you do, you'll receive a warm welcome and have lots to keep you busy. A wide assortment of year-round events offers fun and entertainment—however you personally define it.
