Park City Event Guide: July 27 – 29
The fireworks are (hopefully) done, the days are getting a bit shorter, and the heat is sitting comfortably for a spell. We are in the midst of the dog days of summer – traditionally the 40 days of summer stretching from July 3 – August 11. Luckily, here in Park City, we love all things dog, so we are full steam ahead with nothing but – what else? – more fun!

Old Salt Union

“Old Salt Union is a string band founded by a horticulturist, cultivated by classically trained musicians, and fueled by a vocalist/bass player who is also a hip-hop producer. It is this collision of styles and musical vocabularies that informs their fresh approach to bluegrass and gives them an electric live performance vibe that seems to pull more from Vaudeville than the front porch.” With a description like that, how can you *not* go see them?

Show @ 5:30 PM (rain or shine)

AIKO, a band of musical brothers, was formed in 1984, in Nashville, in the spirit of the Grateful Dead and the Allman Brothers. The band combines American rock, folk, psychedelia, country, and bluegrass and is made up of an equally eclectic group of musicians from around the country. While most of the band members have day jobs, they still gather once or twice a year to play reunion shows in various U.S. cities. This week, we get to enjoy them right here at the Snow Park Amphitheatre! We’ll definitely be hitting this show up, as the band features one of our very own from The Colony community!
The Colony at White Pine Canyon is the largest gated ski-in, ski-out community in the United States.
In winter, enjoy exclusive ski and snowboard access to one of America’s largest mountain resorts, Park City. In spring, the snow melts to reveal an amazing network of hiking, biking, and horseback riding trails, connecting to more than 400 miles of single-track trails throughout the surrounding area.
