Park Silly Sunday Market
Sundays, June 3 – September 23, 2018
10 AM – 5 PM
It’s officially summer in Park City, and we know this for a few reasons: the sun rises early, flowers are in bloom, that dude on Comstock has his dog warning staked in the front yard, and Park Silly Sunday Market shuts down Historic Main Street and packs the pavement with people, local products, and potations.
Park Silly is an “eco-friendly open air market, street festival, and commUnity forum where neighbors and friends come together…” To fully experience Silly Market, we recommend the fabulous and free city bus, or a carpool (traffic and parking can get a bit, well, silly).
Then, start at the top of Main to stock up on fruits and veggies at the farmers’ market, and stroll on down to take in local artwork, locally-made items (from fidget spinners to fur-trimmed jeans), antiques, imports, gourmet foods, and finally, the live music and bar set up at the bottom. Don’t forget your sunscreen and a water bottle!
Barn Party @ National Ability Center
June 2 → 5:30 – 10:00 PM
National Ability Center’s annual Barn Party is a celebration of its Equestrian Program and the start of summer in Park City. Live music, BBQ, a whiskey saloon, and tons of activities for the kiddos make this a Saturday night outing your whole fam will enjoy. We highlighted the incredible work NAC does HERE – take a peek, then grab your boots and hat to get ready for tonight’s party!
Park City Film Series presents “The Rider”
Saturday → 8PM | Sunday → 6PM
Rated R, 104 min.
Park City Film Series provides this synopsis: “A true story of a once rising star of the rodeo circuit warned that his competition days are over after a tragic riding accident. Back home, Brady finds himself wondering what he has to live for when he can no longer do what gives him a sense of purpose: to ride and compete. In an attempt to regain control of his fate, Brady undertakes a search for a new identity and tries to redefine his idea of what it means to be a man in the heartland of America.”
