Park City Event Guide: July 5 – 11
We’ve written about Bill White Farms in the past, and now’s your chance to reap the bounty of this Earthganic movement! What does that mean? From the Bill White Farm website, “We embody an ideology of harvesting healthy plants and livestock through revolutionary methods that have raised the ideals associated with those of traditional and organic farming techniques. With every new day, and every new project, we are constantly learning and transforming agricultural techniques to ensure the well being of our community, and communities around the globe for generations to come.”
The farm is selling its sustainably farmed produce at the Provo Farmer’s Market on Wednesdays. And if you can’t make it there, head out to the farm itself later in the weekend. On Fridays from 2PM – 6PM and Saturdays 10AM – 2PM at the farm, you can get the freshest produce the farm has to offer!
And this week, the Canyons Village Summer Concert Series kicks off. The free concerts start at 6 PM every Thursday and Saturday night at the Canyons Village. New Orleans Suspects is the first band this Saturday!
Here’s what else is happening this weekend…

What’s Your Vision for Park City’s Future?
From Park City Municipal:
We’d like to hear from you, Park City! Take the Park City Vision 2020 community survey and apply to participate in July’s Think Tank Workshops
Park City has launched Park City Vision 2020 – a community visioning project asking residents and business owners to share their perspectives on:
- What makes Park City the place that people wish to call home?
- What makes Park City special and what should Park City become?
- What are the elements of the community that, if lost, would fundamentally change the character of Park City?
Park City Vision 2020 will be a 6-month community visioning project to define a Park City Community Vision and Action Plan, as a follow up to the 2009 Park City Community Visioning project.
There will be several opportunities to get involved throughout the visioning process now through October.
For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 435.615.5189.
