Participants should meet at the base of the Sterling Express chairlift (mid-mountain at Silver Lake Lodge). Reservations are required, along with a $10 fee. Be sure to wear sturdy shoes and proper sun protection (and bring along plenty of water and snacks!). To reserve your spot, you’re asked to call 435-645-6648.
RBG @ Jim Santy Auditorium (Park City Library Building)
Friday & Saturday → 8 PM
Sunday → 6 PM (panel to follow)
At the age of 85, Ruth Bader Ginsburg has become a truly unexpected pop culture icon – all while developing a breathtaking legal legacy. RBG is a documentary which takes you on the unique personal journey (called a “fist-bumping, crowd-pleasing doc” by Indiewire) of this quiet warrior and her rise to the nation’s highest court.
On Sunday, there will be a post-film panel with Utah Supreme Court Justice Paige Peterson, University of Utah Law Professor Erika George, and ACLU of Utah Legislative and Policy Counsel Marina Lowe. KPCW News Director Leslie Thatcher will moderate.

Friday & Saturday → 8 PM
Sunday → 6 PM
Al Jardin’s mini-tour, “From the Very First Song with a Founding Member of the Beach Boys,” features songs and stories from the early days of The Beach Boys all the way through Al’s most recent solo album, “A Postcard from California.” He’ll be joined by his son, Matt Jardine, and Jeff Alan Ross. We’re told there will be lots of chances for Q & A, too!
Improvised Fairy Tales @ Park City Library
Saturday, June 9 → 3 – 4 PM
More family fun at Park City Library on Saturday, when Park City Improv will turn your favorite fairy tales on their head. We’re excited (and a little bit nervous?) for this one.
Native Plant Sale @ Recycle Utah
Saturday, June 9 → 9 – 11 AM
Recycle Utah will host a native plant sale tomorrow morning, with drought-tolerant plants available for your garden. All plants are supplied by southern Utah nurseries (which specialize in xeriscaping and low-maintenance landscaping), and were brought here by Park City Nursery. Native plants conserve water with improved soil retention – and less water is required for maintenance. Learn more about all the work Recycle Utah does to improve and protect our community HERE.
