Each year thousands of people, and hundreds of artists all gather in Park City to celebrate beauty.

Visitors are amazed at the depth and quality of art, jewelry, clothing, sculpture, and food that is available to browse or to buy. There are 220 vendors this year! Live music is always a part of the mix and the scene is always lively. All ticket proceeds go directly to the Kimball Arts Center so that they may continue to provide their year-round events, education and exhibits.

Lots of Fun For Kids at the Arts Fest!
The festival offers plenty of hands on fun and engaging activities for kids as well! Of course there will be face painters on hand to help kids express their inner lion, dragon, flower or puppy!

There will also be a kids scavenger hunt, multiple kids geared demonstrations and booths, and a student art show.
Listen the the Mayor of Park City's Band Get Their Groove on at the Arts Fest!
There will be loads of musical artists and bands playing the soundtrack for the weekend, and stages will be located throughout the festival. There will be three stages, the Miner’s Stage, The Kimball Stage, and the Artisan Stage. All day long there will be all sorts of bands and musical guests playing for your pleasure. You’ll hear every kind of music imaginable – including a performance by the Mayor of Park City’s band, the Motherlode Canyon Band, on August 5th at 11AM. Another favorite is the Daniel Day Trio, who will be playing on August 4th at 1PM. The trio is known for their original arrangements of popular pieces – you really have to see them perform!
There is so much going on, all packed in to one weekend! This is a must do in Park City in the summertime.

In to every life a little rain must fall, and boy we are happy to see a few mountain sprinkles today! The mountains are an amazing place after a little rain – everything turns an even brighter green in gratitude for the moisture that so rarely occurs in the summer months in our high alpine desert setting. Although you may be tempted to luxuriate in your fabulous Park City hotel and watch the rain fall, there are still an array of activity options to choose from while the storm passes.
The Hippest Bowling Alley Around - Jupiter Bowl
Take the family bowling! Jupiter Bowl, located in Kimball Junction, just steps away from the Newpark Hotel, at 1090 Drive, is a great place to spend an afternoon or evening. Rated #1 for all ages apres ski by Ski Magazine, you’ll find activities for every age at this bowling alley. Plus, the interior will blow your mind! Looking more like a chic night club versus a traditional bowling alley, you’ll find yourself tapping your toe to music being played throughout the alley while watching music videos on the enormous multi-screen audio/video viewing experience! Jupiter Bowl is truly more of an all-around entertainment venue than just bowling, and hosts 16 luxury lanes of uber-chic bowling, plus three pool tables in the billiards lounge – they even have an arcade! After you bowl a few frames, head over to their restaurant, the Lift, and taste some truly yummy American classic cuisine. They often offer “Lunch and Bowl” specials as well! To top it all off, you’ll find the Black Diamond Bar with boasts a 360-degree view of all the activities. In the evening, Jupiter Bowl turns in to one of the hippest nightlife spots in Kimball Junction, so order up a White Russian and enjoy!
The Best Spot For Coffee, Tea and Books in Park City - Atticus Coffee & Teahouse
What’s my favorite thign to do on a rainy day? Curl up with a good book, a hot cup of tea, and enjoy a little down time! Atticus Coffee, Books & Teahouse is the perfect spot to indulge in a little quiet downtime in between all of the other activities you’re enjoying in Park City. Atticus offers both new and used books, so you can truly find some steal on their shelves. Plus, they make a mean latte, and their tea selection is unparalleled this side of the rocky Mountains! If the time slips away from you while your sipping away and skimming through the shelves, you’ll be glad to know that there is a breakfast and lunch menu available with tasty, healthy options to sustain you through your reading adventures. My favorite is the Scout sandwich – a toasted bagel topped with melted cheddar cheese, sprouts and avocado. Atticus is truly a locals favorite, and conveniently located right at 738 Main Street.
Catch A Movie At The Redstone 8 Theaters in Kimball Junction
The easy bet on a rainy day is to dig in to a pile of popcorn and watch a movie. The Redstone 8 Cinemas, located 6030 North Market Street in Kimball Junction, is a comfortable, modern theater that is a great place to snuggle in on a rainy day. They always offer the latest releases, and host a variety of snacks to indulge in as you while away your afternoon sinking in to the newest, best action adventure, comedy or romance. After the movie, walk next door to Ghidotti’s for a fantastic rustic Italian meal, or head right across the street to Red Rock Brewing Company for a great burger and local brew!
Summers can sizzle in Park City! We are lucky here in the Wasatch Mountains, warm, sunny days followed by cool, starry nights at altitude – the best of both worlds. The sun can be pretty powerful at altitude, so you may want to spend a day or two lounging by one of Park City’s fantastic pools located at one of Park City’s fabulous hotels!
The Amazing Salt Water Pool at Hotel Park City
One of the best pools to lounge by is the sparkling salt water pool at Hotel Park City. While you’re relaxing in one of their cushioned chez loungers, you’ll have spectacular vistas of Park City Municipal Golf Course, Park City Mountain Resort, and the lovely resort grounds surrounding you. What makes this the perfect place to enjoy a lazy poolside day is the fact that you can pick up one of the poolside phones and order a delicious lunch or a refreshing beverage. When we hit this pool, we sometimes head to the municipal golf course driving range, just steps away, hit a bucket of balls, and then head to the pool for a little R&R. The ambiance at Hotel Park City’s pool is country club-esque!
The St. Regis Pool Deck
Another fabulous pool is located at the St. Regis. You’ll take in amazing views of Deer Valley as you kick back by the St. Regis’s secluded, heated outdoor pool. When things get a little chilly, scamper over to the bubbling hot tub and relax those tired muscles aching from a day well spent exploring the miles of trails just outside your door in Deer Valley. In the evening, grab one of their unique, award winning cocktails and head over to one of their uber modern outdoor firepit son the pool deck. Really, it’s serious indulgence to pamper yourself at the St. Regis!
Luxuriate in the Spa and Heated Pool at Stein Eriksen Lodge
The Stein Eriksen Lodge hosts an amazing pool, located adjacent to their award winning spa. Sit back and relax while enjoying slope-side views of Deer Valley, and when the mood hits, take a dip in their heated pool or hot tub. To cap off the day, bring the whole gang to hang out by the gorgeous outdoor fire pit, grab some marshmallows and make s’mores while you catch up on all of the days activities. Perhaps you’ll be tempted to sample one of the spa’s fabulous services. If you’re searching for a serious pampering with the one you love, book the couples massage room. It’s absolutely indulgent! The couple’s treatment rooms, complete with private showers and tubs and a shared private relaxation suite with a fireplace, will certainly add a little spark to your Park City vacation!
Sundial Lodge Offers A Cozy Pool and Rooftop Hot Tub
Head to the other end of town and enjoy your day lounging by the Sundial Lodge pool, located at the Canyons resort. A smaller, cozy pool, it’s serenity is drawn from the staggering beautiful surroundings of the Canyons Resort which wraps itself around you as you gaze up from a comfy lounge chair. Feeling like you need a bird’s eye view? Head up to the rooftop and relax in the hot tub! It’s a fantastic place to take it all in after a day of exploring the expanse area that is Canyons! Mountain biking, hiking, lunch at the Red Pine Lodge – you may not be able to fit it all in, but you’ll enjoy reminiscing a day well spent while taking a dip in the heated pool. The Sundial Lodge is always a popular place to spend a Park City vacation!
Park City loves the Olympics, there’s no doubt about it! We all threw ourselves in to the 2002 games when they arrived to Park City, and each time the games come around again, winter or summer, we all love to celebrate the amazing athletes, the American pride, and the unbelieveable time we all had during the 2002 Olympic Games!
During your visit to Park City, you too can enjoy a taste of the Olympic spirit! Saturday, June 23rd, 2012 has officially been proclaimed Olympic Day in Summit County. Beginning at 4PM until 5PM, a community event will be held at the Utah Olympic Park in conjunction with the National Ability Center, and will include Olympic and Paralympic athletes in a meet and greet setting, sport activities and displays. At 5PM, prior to the weekly summer Flying Ace All-Star Freestyle Show, Olympic Athlete Shannon Bharke will lead the crowd in a celebration of the Olympic Movement in the spirit of the Summer Olympic Games that are just around the corner in London. Dave Ure, the Summit County Council Chair, will read the official Olympic Day Proclamation which is demonstrative of Summit County’s support of physical fitness and participation in athletic activities. After the ceremony – the flying will begin! You’ll be wowed by the Flying Aces show which showcases the U.S. Aerial team and their amazing athletic feats above ground before they splash down in to the bubbling pool below! It really doesn’t get much more Olympic than that!

Of course Park City has a host of world-class dining establishments that include fare from all over the globe; from French classic cuisine to great American BBQ classics, every palate will be pleased with the culinary delights that exist in our quaint little ski town. However, sometimes, you just need to spice things up and push the dining envelope a bit – enjoy a meal that is truly exotic and full of unique flavor. Well, we’ve got that here in Park City too; here are a few options for you to try…no passport necessary!
Spice Things Up At Cafe Trang
Cafe Trang, located at 1811 Sidewinder Drive, offers Vietnamese cuisine along with a few Chinese favorites and is the recipient of numerous Best In State awards for their consistently delicious Asian fare. You won’t walk away hungry, as the portion sizes are ample, and best when shared so everyone can delight in the complex flavors of Vietnamese and Cantonese food. Try one of their Hot Wok Noodle dishes, made with protien or tofu, or perhaps a traditional curry dish is more your speed. Looking for something a little lighter? Try their signature Mango Fish for dinner, or their Vegetable Egg Noodle Soup. The menu is quite varied and large – it’s tough to choose, so bring some friends, order a wide selection and enjoy!
Enjoy a Taste of the Southwest at Chimayo
Another fantastic choice for a walk on the spicy side is Chimayo, a very distinctivee Southwestern Restaurant located at 368 Main Street. When you step in to Chimayo, you certainly feel like you have taken a step across the boarder. With glowing lanterns, wrought iron detail and touches of Southwestern flare in each nook and corner, the illusion of being transported to a chic Southwestern destination is complete. Begin your evening with one of their signature margaritas – my favorite Margarita in Park City! Then, enjoy snacking on some of their house-made bread accompanied by amazing balsamic dipping sauce. But don’t fill up too much – you’ll surely want to try one of their yummy starters, like the Herb Dusted Calamari. When you move along to the entrees, you may choose to pick one of the locals favorites, like the Coconut and Corn Encrusted Halibut, or the Crown Roast of BBQ Spareribs. Finish off your Southwestern dining adventure with the Mexican Chocolate Fondue, or a few Mexican Wedding Cookies! Muy Delicioso!
Finally, if you happen to be staying in a fabulous Kimball Junction hotel, you’ll definatley want to enjoy lunch or dinner at the Loco Lizard Cantina, located at 1612 Ute Boulevard, right in the shopping area located there. The Lizard is a long-time locals favorite spot for dining. The Cantina itself is contemporary and comfortable while the recipes are touched with Old World flare. Featuring a variety of traditional Mexican cuisine, everyone will find their favorite easily on their varied menu. I’m a big fan of their fresh, house-made salsa! The Lizard has an amazing selection of Carnitas, Salmon Tacos, Carne Asada, Pozole, Tamales and fresh seafood items. The Lizard also serves brunch on Saturday and Sunday and has a great little patio for outdoor dining. They have a kids menu available too for the little ones in your group.
Life is busy. Even those of us fortunate enough to live in a resort town like Park City, Utah have to remind ourselves to take a moment to slow down and relax every now and again. In order to be successful at the R&R mission, my husband and I have decided that each Sunday we will take the time to become tourists in our own town – to slow down for one day just long enough to truly enjoy the amazing Park City area and experience some of the activities we have always desired to check out, but never had the time. This Sunday was spent doing one of my favorite things, as it happens so infrequently…absolutely nothing!
No Worries Cafe - A True Mountain Cafe!
We began our morning with breakfast at No Worries Cafe - aptly named for our mission of relaxation! No Worries is a true locals favorite, as it is located a bit off the beaten track in Summit Park, a short 15 or so minute drive out of the Main Street area in Park City. Don’t let the location dissuade you, as it is attached to a Sinclair Gas Station, just off of I-80 at the Parley’s Summit exit. This hidden gem serves up home-style breakfast and lunch every day, and has outdoor seating available. No Worries is family owned, and offers mouth-watering custom breakfast omelets, hearty breakfast skillets, as well as incredible daily lunch specials all whipped up by owner and former 5-star chef, Dante. Try the “50-Ways to Make Your Burger” lunch option – the name says it all. With more options than you can imagine, you are left to craft a gourmet burger of your own design! Veggie burgers are available too. If you really want to feel like a local, and have a fantastic meal while you’re at it, head on up to No Worries!
Glorious Days by the Pool at Hotel Park City
After our delicious breakfast, we headed over to Hotel Park City to indulge in a day by their sparkling pool. If you’re not a guest of the hotel, the helpful spa staff will happily offer you different punch card options from a one-time pass to a ten use punch card. Annual and seasonal memberships are also available for purchase if you travel to Park City frequently. We carved out our space next to the pool, grabbing two comfortable lounge chairs and an umbrella, as our winter white skin has not seen too much sun yet! Nestled in for the day, we absolutely enjoyed napping by the pool, taking a dip in the heated salt water pool every now and again, and gazing out at the spectacular views surrounding us. Hotel Park City has unobstructed views of the green slopes of Park City Mountain Resort as well as the Park City Golf Course. Although you can call Bandannas Restaurant, located just steps away in the hotel, from the pool phone and order beverages, lunch or snacks poolside, after a few hours soaking in the sun, we opted to head over to Bandannas and grab lunch while sitting out at one of their shaded outdoor tables. My Cobb Salad was delicious – and I loved the sun dried tomatoes included in the mix!
Relax Indoors or Out at Bandannas Restaurant
After lunch, we decided it was time to grab something for the grill, in case we decided we were hungry for dinner, and head home. Our favorite spot to grab items for the grill is Whole Foods, located in Kimball Junction, just a few moments away. With a wide selection of organic and natural meats and fish, it takes a few moments to choose! We decided on some yummy chicken and veggie kabobs marinated in a maple rosemary seasoning – a favorite, and a fantastic end to a day well spent relaxing in Park City! We’ll see what adventure next Sunday will bring!
This evening we decided to treat ourselves to a night out to enjoy Park City during this beautiful time of year. Restaurants are beginning to place their dining decks out on Main Street, the trees and flowers are blooming, and the evenings are absolutely amazing; still a little chilly, but sheer Rocky Mountain Perfection! This is such a great time of year to visit Park City – the late spring / early summer season. The town has a mellow vibe, parking is easy to come by, and you can explore the shops, restaurants and nightlife with little to get in your way since the busy prime summer season has yet to begin. Life is good right now in Park City!
Delicious Fare at El Chubasco
We began our evening looking to indulge in a locals favorite affair; Taco Tuesday’s at Windy Ridge Cafe. With a menu full of yummy Mexican choices, all costing anywhere from $2-$8, you really can’t go wrong! Plus, Windy Ridge offers drink specials to top off your evening – truly an inexpensive and delicious way to spend an evening. However, everyone else seemed to have the same plan, so we headed to El Chubasco, located on Bonanza nestled in a little strip mall. Never a disappointment, the food and service are always fantastic at this local favorite Mexican joint. I highly recommend “Chubby’s Salad”, as it is chock full of fresh garden veggies, a little cheese, and the grilled protein of your choice. I can never finish the entire thing! Another favorite is their enormous and fresh burritos, served with guacamole or smothered, it is an entire meal all wrapped up in a homemade tortilla. Add a Dos Equis or perhaps an Izzy soda, and your meal is complete! El Chubasco offers limited seating outside, and it is usually crowded, but always worth the wait. While you’re waiting, take a peek at the homemade salsa bar and pick out a few house-made salsas to sample with your chips. Delicioso!
Delicious Treats Abound at Rocky Mountain Chocolate
After dinner, we decided that the evening was too gorgeous to waste by simply heading home, so we decided to take a quick two-minute drive to take a stroll on Main Street. It’s always a tresat to re-aquaint ourselves with the eclectic shops and galleries that line this charming street, and it’s fun to see dining guests embracing the lovely evening sitting out on Park City’s dining decks. We decided to head in to Rocky Mountain Chocolates and treat ourselves to a little post-dinner sweet snack. I can’t resist their fresh caramel apples! Although they offer an unimaginable array of choices when it comes to what your apple is dipped in, I always opt for plain caramel, perhaps with a little chocolate drizzle – simpy delicious! Rocky Mountain Chocolates also offers hand made specialty chocolates, ice cream, and even dipped doggie bones for your four-legged family member.
Charming Main Street in Park City
It’s easy to find things to tempt your palate, your artistic side, or your inner foodie while strolling up and down Main Street, and what’s so fantastic about this time of year is thst you can duck in just about anywhere and not worry about waiting in line for a table, or edging through crowds to get that souvenir to take home with you. What’s even better, the lodging rates are super reasonable in the early summer season. Taking advantage of these seasonal rates will give you a little extra in your wallet to spend on your perfect Park City evening out!

A favorite of mine, and many other locals, is the Deer Valley Concert Series, which occurs each Wednesday at the Snow Park Amphitheater. This season will kick off on June 20th at 6PM with local favorite band Muddpuddle. This is a weekly event we all look forward to – a break from the week to sit with family and friends and to enjoy a spectacular mountain evening listening to fantastic local music. Each week the musical vibe may change, but the atmosphere on the hillside stays the same – one of relaxation and appreciation for this amazing ski town!

The quality of the BBQ is fantastic; the ribs are tender, falling right off the bone, and the smoked chicken is delicious! The location offers a casual, family friendly vibe where diners can choose to eat in, or take their BBQ away. Dicky’s also offers authentic sweet tea and other Southern delights to temp you!
