A peek at the calendar of June events in Park City will leave you excited and overwhelmed—and maybe with a slight case of #FOMO (Fear of Missing Out). From farmers’ markets and festivals to concerts, there’s plenty going on for visitors, couples, and families alike.
I picked out a few highlights below, but also be sure to check out local bike shops for group women’s rides, the Park City Film Series calendar if you need a little dose of A/C and inspiration, and my Summer Concert Calendar for a listing of concerts throughout Park City and Salt Lake City.
Latino Arts Fest
Celebrate Latino culture during the first weekend in June at this family-friendly event. This free festival features free Sundance Film Institute screenings, art, folk dancing, live music, and food. The fiesta will be held from 3pm until 8pm at the Park City Library.
Park City Farmers’ Market
Praise to the produce gods, farmers’ market season has at last arrived. Since the last Wednesday in May through October 18, the Park City Farmers’ Market brings us local foods and crafts plus live music. The market is held rain or shine every Wednesday from noon until 6pm at the Cabriolet parking lot for the Canyons. Local rhubarb and asparagus, here you come! If you’re more of a weekender market person, scroll down to get the details on the Park Silly Sunday Market.
Monster Drawing Rally
Here’s how this fun interactive event on June 1 at the Kimball Art Center works: local artists take turns creating art for 50 minutes each. Watch them work, then buy the finished products for $50 apiece at the end of the night. When that painting or drawing hangs on your wall, you’ll have vivid memories of the creative process and evening behind it. Earthestra will provide local tunes while Uptown Fare and Riverhorse on Main cater. Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door and can be purchased online.
Summer Kickoff Expo
New to Park City? Acquaint yourself with the town’s many amenities and offerings at this small business expo at the Boneyard. This free event will be held from 4-7pm on June 1 and includes complimentary food, a cash bar, and giveaways galore.
Park Silly Sunday Market
As much a social gathering as it is a place to buy delicious goods, the Park Silly Market brings the community together every weekend in summer. This enormous market takes over Main Street Sundays from 10am-5pm, June 4 through September 17. Big kudos to the market for going the extra eco-mile—the organizers go to great length to achieve zero waste and also to invite local nonprofits to participate for free.
Wasatch Mountain Film Festival
If you love films about the great outdoors that we all enjoy in Park City, you’ll want to mark June 19 for this documentary film festival. The festival features adventure films that also address environmental, cultural, and political issues. Films will screen in Park City at the Jim Santy Auditorium and the Park City Library on Monday, June 19. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased online.
Mark Cohn at the Egyptian Theatre
Grammy-winning artist Marc Cohn will perform with two other musicians at Park City’s historic venue on Main Street. To celebrate the 25th anniversary of his platinum album True Companion, he’ll be playing the entire record from beginning to end, starting with the hit “Walking in Memphis.” Shows run June 22-24 and begin at 8pm each evening. Tickets start at $35 on Thursday and $39 for the weekend and are available online. For many more concerts in June, check out my Summer Concert Calendar.
Stay tuned for a post about Father’s Day fun in Park City the week before June 18.
