Park City's biggest summer event, the Park City Kimball Arts Festival, happens this weekend, August 3-5 on the city's historic Main Street. More than 55,000 visitors attend the festival each year to enjoy exhibits from about 200 artists in a wide array of media, including ceramics, drawing, fiber, glass, painting, mixed medium, metal, photography, printmaking, wood, sculpture and jewelry.
The festival includes the culinary arts as well, with a Utah Artisan Tasting event at the top of main street, where visitors will be able to sample locally produced specialty foods, and local restaurants offering discounts to festival goers as part of the Taste of Art event.
Music and live entertainment are an important part of the festival, with free live music performances on three stages each day. Festival After Dark keeps the festival going at night with concerts, Sundance Institute film screening of Bones Brigade, and stand-up comedy acts each night hosted at Canyons, Deer Valley, Egyptian Theater, Downstairs, and St. Regis. Big name acts include Earth, Wind & Fire, Lukas Nelson, Rodger Hodson of Supertramp fame as well as Disney in Concert for the family. Some Festival After Dark events are free, while others require a ticket.
