Park City SUP
Saturday, May 26 → 10 AM – 5 PM

Grab your stand up paddle board (Or don’t – you can rent one!) and head over to Deer Valley Drive; Park CIty SUP is opening for its eighth year of business! The summer season begins at 10 on Saturday, with a sale on new and used boards. You’re welcome to bring your old board to sell, too – the summer kickoff SUP swap happens all weekend long.

Swaner Climbing Wall

“Climb through the Swaner ecosystems from the bedrock to the uplands” — all from the comfort of the Swaner Preserve and EcoSystem. They supply the harness if you show up with closed-toe shoes, and the wall is open for business for a few hours on Saturday and Sunday afternoons. Members get 12 free climbs, others pay $5 for 8 climbs. Swaner has a list of activities and learning opportunities that continues to surprise and delight us – check out all there is to do there HERE!
Monday Night Casting Clinics
Monday, May 28→ 5 – 7 PM
Every Monday evening, from Memorial Day through Labor Day, Jans’ fly fishing experts offer free fly casting lessons and equipment tips. Join them at 5 p.m., at the ponds in lower Deer Valley, next to the gazebo. If you own a rod, you’re asked to bring it along – if you don’t, they have a limited number of rods folks can borrow.
Park City Film Series → Isle of Dogs
Friday & Saturday → 8 PM | Sunday → 6 PM
PG-13, 101 min.
Wes Anderson’s unique stop-motion-animated film takes you through an outbreak of canine flu in Japan – which leads to a quarantine of all the dogs on an island. One boy tries to rescue his dog, Spots, and gets help from a pack of misfit pups who have also been exiled. But wait – THERE WILL BE PUPPIES. Nuzzles & Co. will have real-life adoptable pups at every screening!
Monster Drawing Rally
Kimball Art Center
Thursday, May 31 → 6 – 9:30 PM
This is a whole new kind of party! The live-drawing event pulls spectators in to spy on the creative process while getting to know our incredible – an incredibly talented – local artists. Artists take three 50-minute shifts drawing and creating art. Sketches are transformed into completed works – collage, watercolor, acrylic, graphite, and other media are all included. Best of all, they’re available for purchase immediately!
There will be food, local music and a cash bar at The Drawing Rally (presented by the Park City Summit County Arts Council and the Kimball Art Center). Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door; kids under 10 are free.
